Panthers re-sign Campbell, close to re-signing Olesz

From Steve Gorten of the South Florida Sun Sentinel:

The Panthers re-signed forward Gregory Campbell to a two-year contract Thursday and expect to secure forward Rostislav Olesz with a long-term extension in the next few days.

General Manager Jacques Martin said he’s “very confident” a deal with Olesz would be done by Tuesday.

Terms of Campbell’s deal weren’t disclosed, but the center/winger said it’s more than the $525,000 he earned last season. Campbell, 24, played on the Panthers’ third and fourth lines last season — his third in the NHL — and was a pesky penalty killer.

Both of these young players should play a key role in the Panthers’ future, so it is good to get them under contract and have their focus shift to next season.
