Panthers, Versteeg continue to talk

The Florida Panthers would like to get winger Kris Versteeg locked up to a long-term contract and avoid arbitration, the Miami Herald reports.

However, Panthers GM Dale Tallon told the paper there has been no progress in negotiations with Versteeg, who filed for salary arbitration and has a hearing scheduled later this month.

The Panthers could still sign Versteeg to a long-term deal and avoid the arbitration hearing, however the Herald suggests that might be unlikely.

Versteeg, 26, is coming off a three-year, $9.25 million contract.

In 71 games with the Panthers last season, Versteeg recorded 23 goals and 31 assists for 54 points.
