The Florida Panthers signed prospect Steven Hodges to an entry-level contract, the team announced Sunday.

Hodges, who missed the first two months of the season recovering from a knee injury, registered 21 goals and 26 assists and a plus-20 rating in 52 games with the Victorial Royals (WHL) last season.

Florida's third-round pick (84th overall) in 2012, Hodges also posted a team-high 10 points (four goals, six assists) in nine postseason games.
