SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -The Florida Panthers signed right wing Nathan Horton to a six-year deal Thursday.
The deal is worth a reported $24 million.
Horton, a first-round pick by Florida in 2003, played in all 82 games for the Panthers this past season. The 22-year-old had a career-high 31 goals and 31 assists.
``Nathan compiled a career-best season last year, proving to be one of our club's top offensive threats,'' Florida coach and general manager Jacques Martin said in a statement. ``He is a very skilled and talented player who is a key part of our nucleus of offensive talent.''
In his three seasons with the Panthers, Horton has played in 208 games with 73 goals and 58 assists.
