Florida Panthers agree to terms with three players

The Florida Panthers have agreed to terms with a trio of players, according to a FOX Sports Florida report.

Defenseman Dylan Olsen agreed to a two-year deal, with forward Garrett Wilson and center Ryan Martindale agreeing to one-year, two-way contracts, according to a team release from Monday.

Olsen, who was acquired in a trade with the Chicago Blackhawks early last season, saw plenty of firsts in his NHL career last season and proved to be a critical piece for the Panthers.

Acquired in an early-season trade with Chicago on Nov. 14, Olsen’s arrival served as a spark for the Panthers as they tried to salvage their 2013-14 season. In the first 17 games Olsen suited up for the Panthers, the team clawed its way to a 9-7-1 record before slowly sliding back down the Eastern Conference standings.

Last season, the 23-year-old also scored his first goal and recorded a five-game point streak during his 44 games with Florida, according to the FOX Sports report.

Wilson saw limited action last season with the Panthers, spending most of the season in the AHL where he tallied 16 assists and 14 goals for the San Antonio Rampage. Martindale, who also played with San Antonio in the AHL, scored 14 points in 37 games last season.
