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

"Juraj has had two productive seasons with the Panthers and we are excited to have him on our team for a third," said Keenan. "He is a hard working player whose continued contributions we look forward to."

The Nitra, Slovakia native has 29 goals and 32 assists in his two seasons with the Panthers, including six power play goals. Kolnik played in his 100th career NHL game on Oct. 5, 2005 against Atlanta and set a career high with four assists on Feb. 28, 2006 at Tampa Bay.
