Panthers Agree to Terms with G Alex Auld and C Stephen Weiss

D Alexei Semenov Accepts Qualifying Offer

SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida Panthers General Manager Mike Keenan announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with both G Alex Auld and C Stephen Weiss. In addition, D Alexei Semenov has accepted his qualifying offer.

Auld, 25, was acquired by Florida from Vancouver on June 23 along with RW Todd Bertuzzi and D Bryan Allen. The Thunder Bay, Ontario native set career highs in games played (67) and wins (33), becoming only the fourth goaltender in Canucks history to record 30 or more wins in a season. He was named Vancouver's Most Valuable Player for the 2005-06 season as voted on by his teammates.

For his career, Auld has played in 81 NHL contests, all with Vancouver (2001-06) going 39-31-2 with a 2.75 GAA. He was originally drafted by Florida with their second choice (40th overall) in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

"Alex was a key player in our deal with Vancouver and we are pleased to have reached a contract agreement with him," Keenan said. "He is a highly skilled goaltender who will be counted on to play a major role in our club's success next season."

Weiss, 23, played in 41 games with the Cats last season recording 21 points (9-12-21) before missing the remainder of the season with a wrist injury on Jan. 1. Prior to his injury, he set a career high with four power play goals, while also recording four multiple point games.

The Toronto, Ontario, native has played in 175 NHL games, all with Florida, scoring 28 goals with 45 assists. He was originally drafted by Florida with their first choice (fourth overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

"We look forward to having a healthy Stephen back next season," Keenan said. "After rehabbing and working out this summer, he should be prepared to be a consistent contributor to our team's success."

Semenov, 25, was acquired by Florida from Edmonton on Nov. 19. In 16 games with the Panthers he scored one goal with one assist and 21 PIM. Prior to the trade, he appeared in 11 contests with Edmonton also notching two points (1-1-2). For his career, Semenov has played in 119 NHL contests scoring five goals with 11 assists and 128 PIM.
