Jason is a high character individual who will be given the opportunity to make our club in training camp and we look forward to both his on-ice and off-ice contributions to the Panthers organization.

Garrison, 23, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound defenseman spent the last three years playing at the University of Minnesota-Duluth playing in 87 games scoring nine goals with 20 assists.
