SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive VP & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has acquired defenseman T. J. Brennan from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for Florida’s fifth round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The fifth round draft pick was originally acquired by Florida from Los Angeles on Feb. 8.

“T.J. is a young and mobile defenseman with a hard shot, who we are pleased to have acquired,” said Tallon. “He is a hard working player with an offensive upside, who has averaged almost a point-per-game in the American Hockey League this season. We look forward to his contributions to our organization.”

Brennan, 23, has played in 21 National Hockey League games, all with Buffalo (2011-2013) scoring two goals with 12 PIM. He has played in 36 games with Rochester (AHL) this season, ranking first on the club in goals by a defenseman (14), while placing fourth on the team with 35 points (14-21-35). 

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound defenseman was drafted by Buffalo Sabres in the second round (31st overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. The Willingboro, New Jersey native, played for Florida Head Coach Kevin Dineen for two seasons in the AHL with the Portland Pirates (2009-2011).
