SPORTSNET’s Darren Millard reports the Florida Panthers have brought back defenseman Ed Jovanovski, who began his NHL career with the Panthers, details to follow…

**UPDATE** It’s reportedly a four-year deal.

Four years, $16.5 million, or $4.125 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Not a bad short term addition, but four years, and $4 million per season? Too long and too much for a 35-year-old blueliner whose best years are behind him as age and injuries begin to take its toll.
