SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has acquired C Mike Santorelli from the Nashville Predators in exchange for a conditional fifth round selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
 
“Mike is a hard working, young forward who will continue to develop within our organization,” said Tallon. “For the last two seasons, he has led his American Hockey League club in scoring, while also getting the opportunity to compete at the National Hockey League level. We look forward to his contributions to our team.”
 
Santorelli, 24, spent parts of the last two seasons with the Nashville Predators, appearing in 25 games during the 2009-10 season and seven games in 2008-09. He has recorded a three points (2-1-3) and 10 penalty minutes in 32 career NHL games.
 
The 6-foot, 180-pound center spent the majority of the 2009-10 season with the Predators’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, where he led the team with 26 goals and 59 points in just 57 games. He added another seven points (3-4-7) in seven AHL postseason contests. He also led the Admirals with 70 points (27-43-70) in 70 games played during the 2008-09 season.
 
A Vancouver native, Santorelli played his college hockey at Northern Michigan University, where he totaled 110 points (61-49-110) in 121 career games for the Wildcats. He was named to the CCHA First All-Star Team in 2007 after leading the conference with 30 goals in 41 games played.
 
Santorelli was originally selected by the Predators in the sixth round (178th overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
