The Florida Panthers have signed first-round draft pick Jonathan Huberdeau to an entry-level contract. The team announced Monday that they had signed the 18-year-old forward, who was selected third overall in last summer's draft. The Quebec native played in five of the team's preseason games, scoring a team-high three goals. Huberdeau will play this season for his junior team in St. John, Quebec, as the Panthers hope he will add some muscle to his thin 6-foot-1, 171-pound frame. He scored 43 goals and added 62 assists in 67 games last season for St. John.
