The Florida Panthers have re-signed defenceman Brady Keeper to a one-year, two-way contract, the club announced Monday.

The 24-year-old — who in March 2019 made history by becoming the first person of the Pimicikamak Cree Nation to play an NHL game — had 18 points across 61 games with the Springfield Thunderbirds, the Panthers’ AHL affiliate, this past season.

The six-foot-two, 209-pound product of Cross Lake, Man., also appeared in a qualifying-round game for the Panthers against the New York Islanders.

Keeper, a University of Maine alum, signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Panthers on March 18, 2019.
