SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -The Florida Panthers signed center Jozef Stumpel to a two-year contract extension Friday.
The 34-year-old Stumpel has played in 147 games for the Panthers in the past two seasons and had 38 goals and 71 assists. He scored 23 goals last season - a career high.
``Jozef is a proven playmaker who has fit in very well playing along with our core nucleus of forwards over the past two seasons,'' coach and general manager Jacques Martin said. ``He gives us flexibility in our lineup, as he can play center or on the wing, as well as on special teams.''
In his 13-year-NHL career, Stumpel has appeared in more than 900 games and scored 189 goals with 468 assists.
