theScore is previewing each team leading up to the 2016-17 season.
The Florida Panthers made a few changes to a roster that earned the Atlantic Division crown last season, particularly on defense.
Here's a look at the projected depth chart for 2016-17.
- Winger Justin Fontaine will be at training camp on a professional tryout agreement, and the right-hand shot has an outside chance at landing a spot in the bottom six.
- Keith Yandle, Jason Demers, Mark Pysyk, and Mike Matheson are all newcomers to the Panthers' regular group of defenseman, while Adam Pardy will try to crack the roster on a PTO.
- The Panthers have three goalies on one-way deals, a situation that may cost Reto Berra a roster spot once Roberto Luongo is fully recovered from offseason hip surgery.
