They acquired former Flyers captain Claude Giroux. The Panthers would send Owen Tippett, a 2024 first-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick and get a few roster players in return (including Giroux).

They also acquired depth defender Robert Hagg from the Buffalo Sabres for a sixth-round pick. Then, former first-overall pick Aaron Ekblad was placed on LTIR with a season-ending injury.
