SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Thomas Vanek is headed to the Florida Panthers, who added some offensive punch on trade-deadline day in an effort to get back to the playoffs for a second straight season.

Vanek was sent to Florida by the Detroit Red Wings, in exchange for defenseman Dylan McIlrath and a conditional third-round draft pick, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because neither team had yet to publicly confirm the terms.

But Vanek knew he was on the move, even before the final paperwork was all set.
