SUNRISE, Fla. -

The Florida Panthers agreed to terms with four players shortly after hockey's free agent period started Tuesday.

Centers Dave Bolland and Jussi Jokinen were among the early additions, along with left wing enforcer Shawn Thornton and goaltender Al Montoya

Bolland signed a $27.5 million, five-year deal. Jokinen signed for four years and $16 million. Thornton agreed to a $2.4 million, two-year deal and terms of Montoya's deal were not immediately known.

Jokinen had 21 goals and 36 assists for 57 points with Pittsburgh last season. Bolland, who once was with the Chicago Blackhawks when Florida general manager Dale Tallon was in the same role with that franchise, played in just 23 games for Toronto this past season because of a severed tendon in his left ankle.

Thornton comes to Florida from Boston, and was probably best known last season for two incidents that drew disciplinary action from the league. He was suspended 15 games for punching and injuring an unsuspecting Brooks Orpik of Pittsburgh on Dec. 7. And in the playoffs against Montreal, Thornton squirted water from the bench into the face shield of Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban.

Montoya was 13-8-3 with a 2.30 goals-against average for Winnipeg last season, stopping 92 percent of the shots he faced.
