Versteeg has extensive playoff experience, winning Stanley Cups with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2009-10 and 2014-15.
The 29-year-old winger has recorded 11 goals, 22 assists with a minus-6 rating in 63 games this season.
He is in the final year of his contract that carries a salary cap hit of $4.4 million ($2.2 million of which is being retained by the Florida Panthers), and Versteeg is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Versteeg has appeared in 536 career NHL games with the Blackhawks, Panthers, Philadelphia Flyers, and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Carolina traded captain Eric Staal to the New York Rangers earlier on Sunday.
