SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- All-Star winger Anthony Duclair has agreed to join the Florida Panthers on a one-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

The 25-year-old Duclair had a career-high 23 goals and 17 assists for Ottawa last season. Florida becomes his sixth team; Duclair has 79 goals and 83 assists in parts of six NHL seasons.

''Anthony is a dynamic and highly skilled player who is capable of being a dependable offensive contributor for our team'' Panthers general manager Bill Zito said. ''He possesses tremendous speed and goal-scoring ability and earned an opportunity to be named an NHL All-Star last season.''

Duclair has also played for Columbus, Chicago, Arizona and the New York Rangers.
