The Panthers are reportedly preparing to move on from David Clarkson and have begun negotiations with his agent, Paul Perreault.
Perreaux, who is represented by agent Scott Covington, is in the final year of his contract with Perrealtons contract.
Perdue signed a two-year, $2.4 million contract in the offseason and was due $3.3 million for 2017-18.
Perseverance, Perreas best offensive season, and the Panthers success on the power play (5th in the NHL in goals) should help Perreant.
The Panthers have also signed forward Kevin Bieksa to a three-year contract.
Bieksa had seven goals and 24 points in 52 games this season and scored six of his goals on the Panthers power play.
Perreault was originally drafted by the Panthers in the fourth round (180th overall) in 2013, and has played four seasons with the Panthers.
He had eight goals and 23 points in 69 games this year.
