SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Free agent defenseman Eric Cairns signed with the Florida Panthers on Monday.
 

Cairns, 30, had two goals and six assists in 72 games with the New York Islanders last season, and his 189 penalty minutes were the most among NHL defensemen.

In the opening round of the playoffs against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Cairns had two turnovers that resulted in easy goals in a 3-0 loss in Game 1. The eventual Stanley Cup champions won the series in five games.

Cairns has nine goals and 31 assists in an eight-year NHL career.

The terms of the deal were not released.

Cairns is one of the NHL's better fighters, alot of players have said he possesses the biggest biceps in the NHL. He is close to 7 feet tall with his skates on so you can imagine the reach advantage he usually has when he fights, unless of course he's fighting someone like Zdeno Chara.
