Tom Gilbert Looking Good in Florida

14

I liked his game tonight. He was one guy that could, probably, walk away feeling--well, not the one guy, but he had a solid game, I thought. He looked comfortable playing with Brian Campbell, and he showed some strong poise out there, so I think that was a good first showing for him.

That's Florida's coach, Kevin Dineen, talking about Tom Gilbert's first exhibition game. Gilbert, who's on a try-out with the Panthers, scored Florida's only goal. I'd tell you how much he played, but sadly, the NHL didn't track anything but the score.

Tom Gilbert Joins Florida On A PTO

3

Ex-Oiler, and Copper & Blue favourite, Tom Gilbert will be joining the Florida Panthers during training camp on a PTO. Gilbert was bought out by the Wild this summer after he spent a season getting amazingly unlucky when it comes to his on-ice save percentage. Gilbert is a heck of a defender, and the Panthers might have just gotten themselves an absolute steal of a deal.
