NHL Free Agency 2012: Peter Mueller Agrees To Terms With Florida Panthers

Peter Mueller, who Colorado Avalanche, for parts of the last three seasons, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Florida Panthers worth $1,725,000.

Muelller appeared in 32 games for the Avs last season, totaling seven goals and nine assists. Mueller was the eighth overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft, and he was acquired by Colorado from the Phoenix Coyotes in March of 2010. But Mueller has had trouble fulfilling his considerable potential mostly due to concussion issues, which have dogged him since late in 2010, forcing him to miss the entire 2010-2011 season.

The Panthers, though, are willing to roll the dice on Mueller, betting that he'll be closer to the player that scored 54 in 2007-2008.
