Panthers Agree To Terms With RW Nathan Horton

SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida Panthers General Manager Mike Keenan announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with RW Nathan Horton.

Horton, 21, was drafted by Florida with the third overall pick in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. During the 2005-06 campaign, Horton posted career highs in games played (71), goals (28), assists (19), points (47) and penalty minutes (89). On Dec. 13, 2005 versus Nashville, Horton became the youngest Panther ever to record a hat trick (20 years old).

"Nathan is a talented player with whom we are pleased to have reached a contract agreement," said Keenan. "He is a very skilled and hard working offensive player that will play an important role in our club's success next season."

The Welland, Ontario native played in 55 games during his rookie season (2003-04) scoring 14 goals, including six power play goals. Horton became the youngest player in NHL history to score on a penalty shot on Jan. 8, 2004 at Philadelphia.
