Panthers sign top overall pick Ekblad, 3-year deal

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) The Florida Panthers and No. 1 overall draft pick Aaron Ekblad have agreed on a three-year entry-level contract.

Panthers general manager Dale Tallon announced the deal Wednesday, eight days before Ekblad will begin competing at Florida's annual camp for prospects. Ekblad was the Ontario Hockey League's top defenseman last season, with 23 goals and 53 points.

Tallon says Ekblad "is a talented, strong, smart and hardworking defenseman who is ready to take the next step."
