The Florida Panthers wrapped up their most pressing off-season tasks by Thursday, as they signed one last free agent in defenseman MacKenzie Weegar.

Weegar, 23, receives a one-year, two-way contract. The financial terms are unclear.

As one of the final picks (seventh round, number 206) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Weegar has done well to move up the organizational rankings. While putting up solid numbers for a defenseman in the AHL these past two seasons, he also earned a cup of coffee with the big club, playing three regular-season games with the Panthers in 2016-17.
