The Florida Panthers have signed free-agent forward Troy Brouwer to a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.

The deal is worth $850,000, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

"Troy is a skilled veteran forward with championship experience," Panthers president of hockey operations and general manager Dale Tallon said in a statement. "He adds depth to our forward group and his leadership will help our developing young core take the next step this season."

The 33-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Calgary Flames and became an unrestricted free agent in early August after the team bought out the final two years of his contract.

Brouwer tallied six goals and 16 assists in 76 appearances with the Flames during the 2017-18 season.

The Vancouver native has logged 763 career games during stints with the Chicago Blackhawks, Washington Capitals, St. Louis Blues, and Flames.
