The Florida Panthers have signed defenseman Alexander Petrovic to a one-year deal, the team announced Friday.

The one-year contract is reportedly worth $1.95 million, per CapFriendly.

"Alexander is a dependable young defenseman who adds size and physicality to our lineup," said GM Dale Tallon.

Petrovic, 26, appeared in 67 games for the Panthers last season, recording two goals and 13 points and had a team-leading average of 2.1 hits per game.

The former second-round pick was one of four Florida defensemen protected in last year's expansion draft, leaving forwards Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith exposed.
