Bennett joined the Panthers from Calgary on April 12. In 10 regular-season games, Bennett scored six goals and nine assists for 15 points. During Florida’s playoff series, the 25-year-old had one goal and four assists.

“Sam’s impact on our club this past season was seen immediately, injecting physicality, skill and energy into our lineup,” said general manager Bill Zito.

Defensemen Lucas Carlsson and Noah Juulsen also re-signed with the Panthers for next season. It was rumored that a new contract for forward Sam Reinhart is also underway. Reinhart joined the team from Buffalo on Saturday.

“That’s all going to get announced and worked on in due time,” Reinhart said when asked about the rumor.
