Report: Panthers F Sam Reinhart gets 8-year, $69M deal

Stanley Cup hero Sam Reinhart agreed to an eight-year extension with the Florida Panthers through the 2031-32 season.

The Panthers announced the deal but financial terms were not disclosed. Multiple reports put the contract value at $69 million ($8.625 million average annual value).

“Since coming to South Florida, Sam has demonstrated his ability to be a powerful scoring threat while maintaining strong defensive play,” general manager Bill Zito said. “His versatility and value as a player are only outshined by his premier personality and work ethic, and we are pleased to have him continue on with our group.”

Reinhart scored the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Edmonton Oilers last month, lifting the Panthers to the franchise’s first championship.

The 28-year-old forward set a Florida record with 57 goals and added 37 assists while playing all 82 games in the 2023-24 season. He added 16 points (10 goals, six assists) in 24 playoff games.

Drafted No. 2 overall by Buffalo in 2014, Reinhart has 538 points (255 goals, 283 assists) in 696 games with the Sabres (2014-21) and Panthers.

In addition to Reinhart, the Panthers also have forwards Aleksander Barkov and Matthew Tkachuk under contract for the next six years.
