The NHL’s number one draft pick put pen to paper today, as Aaron Ekblad signed a 3 year entry level contract with the Florida Panthers.
After teasing about moving the pick before drafting Ekblad, the Panthers seem to have made the wise decision of making the 18 year old their own.
This may be a weird thing to say, but this Florida team are starting to look a lot better and in a conference where anything can happen… Well, anything could happen. I’m not saying this team are playoff bound, because they’re not. But they’re getting stronger by building from the back end.
Perhaps there will be a few more people filling out those BB&T Center seats this season.
