The Florida Panthers aren't done adding veteran reinforcements ahead of their season opener.

The Panthers and 30-year-old free-agent defenseman Ryan Whitney agreed to a one-year contract Sunday night, according to multiple media outlets. TSN's Bob McKenzie reported that the one-year pact is worth $900,000.

Since the franchise's sale to New York businessman Vincent Viola, the Panthers have bolstered their lineup with a collection of NHL veterans. Last week, in addition to Whitney, they added goaltender Tim Thomas, defenseman Tom Gilbert, and center Brad Boyes.

Whitney had been on a tryout with the St. Louis Blues before the team released him last Friday. His best season came in 2006-07, when he put up 59 points for the Pittsburgh Penguins. In 2012-13 with the Edmonton Oilers, he played in only 34 games.
