The Florida Panthers have shored up their blueline by agreeing to terms with defenceman Dennis Seidenberg on a one-year deal worth $2.25 million.

The veteran unrestricted free agent played last season with the Carolina Hurricanes. The 28-year old is entering his seventh NHL campaign, and is coming off his best offensive year in which he scored five goals and 25 assists.

Seidenberg began his career with the Philadelphia Flyers, and has also played for the Phoenix Coyotes. He was a sixth-round pick of the Flyers in the 2001 draft.
