Brett McLean Inks 3-Year Deal With Panthers
Florida Panthers General Manager and Head Coach Jacques Martin announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with C Brett McLean.

McLean, 28, posted career-high marks last season in goals (15), plus/minus (+8) and game-winning goals (3). He also notched 20 assists in 78 games while playing for the Colorado Avalanche last season. McLean recorded all 15 of his goals while playing at even strength and he went two for three in shootouts with a game-winner. The Comox, British Colombia native has appeared in 238 NHL games with 106 points (35-71-106), throughout his four year career while playing for both Chicago (2002-04) and Colorado (2005-07).

“Brett is a gritty, tough and competitive power forward who will make an immediate impact in our line-up,” Martin said. “He is a high character and versatile player who gives us more depth at the forward position. Brett perfectly fits the mold of a Panthers player who we are confident will contribute to this organization in both his on and off-ice efforts.”

McLean was drafted by Dallas with their ninth choice (242nd overall) in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. is the official Web site of the Florida Panthers.
