NHL free agency: Panthers sign Scott Gomez to one-year deal
"Scott is a veteran center who adds further depth to the middle of our lineup," said general manager Dave Tallon. "He is a quick and skilled forward, with a wealth of hockey experience including two Stanley Cup titles, who will be a leader for our younger players."
Gomez had 15 points in 39 games for the San Jose Sharks last season and played in nine of the team's 11 playoff games. He was paid just $700,000 after being bought out by the Montreal Canadiens prior to the season and gave the Sharks a good veteran presence.
