D Willie Mitchell Agrees to Two-Year Contract with Florida Panthers

Florida Panthers Executive Vice President and General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with D Willie Mitchell.

“Willie is a two-time Stanley Cup Champion, who adds leadership and a veteran presence on our blue line,” said Tallon. “He is a high character, hardworking player who will be counted upon to help develop our younger defensemen both on and off the ice.”

Mitchell, 37, has played in 795 career National Hockey League games for New Jersey (1999-2001), Minnesota (2000-2006), Dallas (2005-2006), Vancouver (2006-2010) and Los Angeles (2010-2014), scoring 30 goals with 135 assists and 744 penalty minutes. He has played in 89 post-season games, registering 16 points (4-12-16), winning the Stanley Cup twice with Los Angeles in 2012 and 2014.

The Port McNeill, British Columbia native, was selected by the New Jersey Devils in the eighth round (199th overall) in the 1996 NHL Draft.
