Colton Sceviour will remain with the Florida Panthers for the foreseeable future. The team announced on Monday that it has signed the defensive-minded forward to a three-year contract extension.

“Colton is a hard-working, versatile player who has become a key part of our success on the penalty kill,” Panthers president of hockey operations and general manager Dale Tallon said in a statement formally announcing the news. “He has earned this contract extension through his dedicated work ethic, compete level and character. A reliable two-way player, Colton is an important part of our team both on the ice and in our locker room, for now and for the future.”

The 28-year-old Sceviour signed a two-year contract with the Panthers on July 1, 2016. He spent the previous seven seasons of his career with the Dallas Stars, for whom he first emerged as a regular contributor in 2013-14.
