SUNRISE, Fla.- Florida Panthers Executive VP/General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with F Bobby Butler on a two-year contract. In addition, the club announced today that they have agreed to terms with F Eric Selleck on a one-year contract.

Butler, 26, has played in 128 career National Hockey League games with Ottawa (2009-2012), New Jersey (2012-2013) and Nashville (2012-13) scoring 20 goals with 28 assists and 26 PIM.

Prior to turning pro, Butler played four years of college hockey at the University of New Hampshire. He completed his senior season ranking second among all NCAA Division I players with 29 goals scored, earning him a nomination as a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, as the top U.S. college hockey player. Butler was acquired by Florida from Nashville on June 14.
