The Florida Panthers and defenceman Brandon Montour have reportedly agreed to a new three-year, $10.5-million deal, according to Daily Faceoff's Frank Seravalli.

The 27-year-old was set to become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday with his one-year, $3.85-million deal signed with the Buffalo Sabres last off-season set to expire.

Montour was acquired by the Panthers at the 2020-21 NHL trade deadline from the Sabres in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick.

The native of Brantford, Ont., put up 14 points in 38 games with the lowly Sabres, before adding four points in 12 games down the stretch with the Panthers.

Montour went pointless in six games as the Panthers were ousted by the cross-state rival and eventual Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of playoffs.
