Panthers’ Anton Lundell agrees to 6-year contract. Here’s how much he’ll earn:

Anton Lundell and the Florida Panthers have signed a six-year, $30 million contract that will see the Stanley Cup champions return all eight of their leading scorers from last season to defend their title.

Lundell was a restricted free agent. He had 13 goals and 22 assists in 78 games for the Panthers this past regular season, and his production was even better in the playoffs — with 17 points in 24 games en route to the Cup.

The last of those 17 playoff points came as an assist to set up Carter Verhaeghe’s opening goal in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, as Florida defeated Edmonton 2-1 to secure the franchise’s first title.

“Anton has emerged as a reliable multi-role center for our club, seizing his opportunity from his first day in North America,” said Panthers president of hockey operations and general manager Bill Zito. “His dedication to improvement and cerebral approach to the game have earned him the deep respect of his teammates and coaches, and we are excited to see him continue to grow and succeed with the Panthers.”

The 22-year-old Finnish center has spent three seasons with the Panthers since they took him with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2020 draft. He has 43 goals and 69 assists in 216 games.

The Panthers have now secured even more of their core players for the coming years, with Lundell, captain Aleksander Barkov, Matthew Tkachuk and Gustav Forsling all contracted through the 2029-30 season.
