TheFourthPeriod.com

The Florida Panthers have signed unrestricted free agent center Scott Gomez on a one-year contract.

Gomez, 33, registered two goals and 13 assists for 15 points in 39 games with the San Jose Sharks this past season.

"Scott is a veteran center who adds further depth to the middle of our line-up," said Panthers GM Dale Tallon. "He is a quick and skilled forward, with a wealth of hockey experience including two Stanley Cup titles, who will be a leader for our younger players."

Gomez has played in 941 career NHL games for the New Jersey Devils (1999-2007), the New York Rangers (2007-2009), the Montreal Canadiens (2009-2012) and Sharks (2012-2013), and has accumulated 171 goals and 530 assists for 701 points.

He ranks first among active U.S. born players in assists (530) and points (701) and second in games played (941).

A two-time NHL All-Star (2000, 2008), Gomez has made three Stanley Cup Final appearances with New Jersey (2000, 2001 & 2003), winning the Stanley Cup twice (2000 & 2003).

The Anchorage, Alaska native was originally selected by New Jersey in the first round (27th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
