In his first few weeks on the job, new Florida Panthers general manager Bill Zito was too busy to start looking for a house in South Florida.
With a lot of the heavy lifting out of the way, team president Matt Caldwell says he told Zito to call a realtor.
“In my view, Bill has just done a tremendous job,’’ Caldwell said Monday evening.
“He really hit the ground running. This afternoon, I told him to go and look for a damn house already. He has been working nonstop”
There is still work to be done on the Panthers’ roster — as well as try to get defenseman MacKenzie Weegar signed to a deal in advance of his arbitration hearing — before the upcoming season starts.
