It’s the second day of free agency and the Panthers have made their sixth signing by agreeing to terms with forward Rob Flick on a one-year, two-way contract. The Panthers have been focused on building and improving their AHL affiliate during this year’s free agency period and this is yet another example of that.
Rob Flick, 24, is coming off a Brandon Pirri-esque season in the AHL with the Providence Bruins during which he scored 19 goals and had just 5 assists in 65 games.
“This signing adds further depth to our organization. Flick is a big, two-way forward who is coming off of a career-best season in Providence.” – GM Dale Tallon
Hockey’s Future describes him as a forward with “size and good checking ability”, and although they say he’s not much of a scorer, he did have a career-high 19 goals last season so it’s likely he’ll slot into the Portland Pirates’ bottom-6.
