PeteThe Panthers PR staff was unusually active for a July Monday, putting out four different releases before 1:30 p.m. EST.

Yeah, there's some news to report.

Aside from the team moving to 790-AM (see below) and Steve Goldstein officially being named the TV voice of the team (again, post below), Florida also announced the signing of three players for the coming season.

Two of the players (Rob Globke and Kamil Kreps) signed two-way deals so they will be in camp competing for a spot on the roster. If they don't make it, they will be sent to Rochester and wait for a callup later in the season. Michal Repik, Florida's second-round pick from the recent draft, also agreed to a deal.

Here are the stats: Kreps, 22,  made his NHL debut against Vancouver last year and played in 14 games with the Panthers scoring a goal (Ap. 6 @ TB) with an assist. The 24-year-old Globke played in 19 games this past season, assisting on a goal. He scored seven goals with 11 assists in 48 games at Rochester. Repik, 18, had 24 goals with 31 assists for the Memorial Cup champion Vancouver Giants this past season. He turns 19 on New Year's Eve.
