Panthers agree to terms with forward Serron Noel on 3-year, entry-level contract
SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers President of Hockey Operations & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with forward Serron Noel on a three-year, entry-level contract.
“Serron is a highly skilled, hard-working, young player who we believe has the potential to be an excellent power forward for the Panthers for many years to come”, said Tallon. “At just 18 years of age, his impressive combination of size, speed and character are qualities that have helped him excel this season in Oshawa. We are thrilled to have signed Serron and look forward to his development with the Panthers.”
Noel, 18, has appeared in 62 games with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, producing an OHL career-best 32 goals, 43 assists and 75 points. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound native of Ottawa, Ontario, has posted three four-point games, one hat trick and 21 multi-point games this season with the Generals.
Over 187 career OHL games, all with Oshawa, Noel has produced 149 points (68-81-149).
Earlier this season, he was selected to Team OHL in the 2018 CIBC Canada-Russia Series.
Originally selected by Florida in the second round (34th overall) of the 2018 NHL Draft, Noel is the son of former Canadian Football League running back Dean Noel.
