Boqvist, a native of Falun, Sweden, had the final year of his contract bought out by the Columbus Blue Jackets last month after being placed on unconditional waivers. This buyout made him an unrestricted free agent as of July 1st, after spending three seasons in Ohio.
The Florida Panthers will be the third team in Boqvist's career, following his tenure with the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Chicago Blackhawks, the latter of whom selected him eighth overall in the 2018 NHL Draft.
Last season, Boqvist appeared in just 35 games with the Blue Jackets due to injuries. During those games, he scored ten points (one goal, nine assists) and had a minus-eight rating.
As Boqvist joins the Panthers, he looks to make an impact and establish himself in Florida's defense lineup.
