Dennis Seidenberg Back In The Southeast With Panthers

New, comments

Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg has finally found a home — in South Florida. The Florida Panthers have signed the free agent defenseman to a one-year, $2.25 million deal.

Seidenberg had a breakout season with the Hurricanes last season, setting career highs in goals (five), assists (25) and points (30). He also led Carolina in blocked shots (160) and logged more than 22 minutes of ice time a night. The Hurricanes were unwilling to meet Seidenberg's financial demands this offseason, letting him test the market and instead adding Aaron Ward and Andrew Alberts to round out their defense corps. 

Seidenberg was unable to land a lucrative long-term deal, but now at the dawn of training camp has found a home back in the Southeast.
