Florida Panthers acquire 34-year-old rookie defensemen
Don’t laugh. The cats need help at the position. From the Miami Herald-
ATLANTA — The Panthers’ banged-up defense got some help Thursday as Florida swung a deal for Chicago’s Magnus Johansson.
Florida surrendered a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NHL Draft for Johansson, a 34-year-old rookie. Until joining the Blackhawks this season, Johansson had spent his entire pro career in Europe. Last season, he was captain of his Swedish team, Linkoping.
In 18 games this season, Johansson has zero goals and four assists.
The Panthers need defensive help with Mike Van Ryn (wrist), Cory Murphy (shoulder), Noah Welch (shoulder) and Branislav Mezei (hand) out with injuries.
Florida is badly banged up at Defense. I hope Johansson can help turn the team around. The Panthers have lost five of their last six games.
