Panthers re-sign defenseman MacKenzie Weegar to three-year, $9.75M deal .
The 26-year-old has turned into one of the more underrated defensive defensemen in the league over the last few seasons, spending a good amount of his ice time alongside Aaron Ekblad in Florida. Though he doesn’t give you much offensively — he has just 41 points in 172 career games — Weegar has consistently posted strong possession numbers and is a staple on the penalty kill.Standing just 6-0 and without exceptional speed, Weegar does a little bit of everything on the ice. He’ll hit when needed but will never lead the league in that category and isn’t going to blind you with any 100-foot stretch passes.
