Madden reportedly signing with Panthers.

SUNSENTINEL.COM:Harvey Fialkov reported last night of rumors the Florida Panthers were interested in former Minnesota Wild center and current UFA John Madden.

STARTRIBUNE.COM: Michael Russo reports he’s heard it’s a done deal and the Panthers will announced Madden’s signing on Thursday.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Hopefully we’ll have more details soon. The Panthers have a couple of centers out with injuries. Madden played for the Blackhawks when current Panthers GM Dale Tallon was still part of the ‘Hawks organization.

  1. Man that Dale Tallon is a crafty one. When he was made GM in Florida I said they would be a team to watch for, but I thought it would take longer than this. Madden is a good stopgap for their situation right now. A natural centre, and a veteran to boot. Good move Dale.
