Another member of Florida’s ’14 draft class is now in the fold.

Jayce Hawryluk, taken 31 spots after the club selected Aaron Ekblad No. 1 overall, has agreed to a three-year, entry-level deal with the club, the Panthers announced on Tuesday.

Hawryluk, 20, is in his fourth year with WHL Brandon, where he’s emerged as a quality scorer — he sits second on the team in goals (30) and points (79), trailing only Nolan Patrick, who’s widely predicted to be one of the top picks at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

An invitee to Team Canada’s World Junior evaluation camp this past December, Hawryluk was cut from the final roster.
