SUNRISE – Florida Panthers Executive VP & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with C Andre Deveaux on a one-year, two-way contract.

Deveaux, 28, has played in 31 National Hockey League games for Toronto (2008-2010) and NY Rangers (2011-2012) registering two assists and 104 PIM. The 6-foot-4, 232-pound forward played in nine games for the Rangers last season picking up an assist, while also appearing in 59 contests for Connecticut (American Hockey League) scoring 20 goals with 20 assists.

The Freeport, Bahamas native has played in 476 AHL games scoring 95 goals with 109 assists and 1,371 PIM. Deveaux was originally drafted by Montreal in the sixth round (182nd overall) in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

The Panthers are set to open the 2012-13 season Oct. 13 against the Tampa Bay Lightning and will raise a Southeast Division Championship banner in a pre-game ceremony.
