Mueller agrees with Panthers on 1-year deal

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Panthers have agreed to terms with center Peter Mueller on a one-year contract.

The 24-year-old Mueller has played in 254 NHL games with Phoenix and Colorado, scoring 55 goals and adding 88 assists. His best season came as a rookie, when he had 22 goals and 32 assists for the Coyotes in 2007-08.

Florida general manager Dale Tallon says Mueller has a strong offensive upside, and is expected to help this coming season with the Panthers' power play.

Mueller played in 32 games for Colorado last season, with seven goals and nine assists.

He was the eighth overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Coyotes.
