Wide receiver Jarius Wright says he’s eager to play again for Carolina offensive coordinator Norv Turner – regardless of where he lines up.

Wright signed his three-year contract with the Panthers on Tuesday Jarvis Jenkins Jersey , one day after agreeing to terms .

The 28-year-old Wright figures to compete with Curtis Samuel for Carolina’s third down slot receiver spot behind starters Devin Funchess and Torrey Smith. Wright worked primarily as a slot receiver when he played 2 seasons under Turner with the Minnesota Vikings but said he’s ready to do it all.

”With Norv I have played outside and inside and he does a great job of moving guys around,” Wright said Tuesday on a conference call. ”I think we have a lot of guys who can do a lot of different things.”

The former fourth-round pick out of Arkansas spent all six NFL seasons with the Vikings prior to be released last week. He had 18 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns last season.

His most productive season came in 2014 in Turner’s first season with the Vikings when he caught 42 passes for 588 yards and two touchdowns.

Wright said he thinks Turner will be a good fit in Carolina and great for quarterback Cam Newton because of the way he likes to attack down the field.

”He does a good job of getting the receivers the ball down the field, as well as on screens and reverses,” Wright said. ”With Cam and his strong arm I know he will get the ball down the field because that is what Norv likes to do.”

Wright has become known for his production on third downs where he has registered more than 40 percent of his career receptions and more than 45 percent of his yards receiving.

He’s the second experienced wide receiver to join the Panthers this offseason. The Panthers previously traded for Smith, giving them a player with more big play speed to play opposite Funchess.

Wright said getting released by the Vikings didn’t affect his confidence.

”I have full belief in my talents so I knew I would be playing somewhere, but I didn’t know where,” Wright said.

Thatcher Demko couldn’t stop grinning the whole game in his first NHL start despite giving up the tying goals before the Vancouver Canucks won it in overtime.

Alex Edler scored 1:21 into the extra period and Demko finished with 26 saves in the Canucks’ wild 5-4 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

”I just tried to enjoy it,” the 22-year-old Demko said. ”I had a blast. … Even when they scored on three consecutive shots I was still smiling. It was a lot of fun to be part of it.”

On the winning goal Cameron Jordan Jersey , Edler picked up a loose puck in the Blue Jackets’ end, waited patiently, then beat Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo with a shot to the far side.

”I knew we had a 2-on-1,” Edler said. ”I wanted to pass it but it just wasn’t there.”

Jussi Jokinen had a goal and two assists against his former team, and Darren Archibald, Bo Horvat and Nikolay Goldobin also scored for the Canucks, who tied a season-high with their fourth straight win and fifth in six games after a seven-game skid.

The Blue Jackets erased a 4-1 deficit by scoring three goals in 2:37 late in the third period to tie it.

Pierre-Luc Dubois started the comeback with a power-play goal with just under four minites remaining, Zach Werenski pulled Columbus within one with 1:37 left and Cam Atkinson tied it 16 seconds later.

”We’re a team that regardless of the score we are never out of the fight Al Davis Jersey ,” said Atkinson. ”We’re still fighting for our lives, so we can’t afford to take our foot off the gas pedal for a second. When we did, it showed.”

Seth Jones had a goal and three assists, Artemi Panari had four assists and Korpisalo finished with 24 saves for the Blue Jackets, who are 12-1-1 in their last 14 games as they try to pass Pittsburgh for second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Columbus coach John Tortorella was happy his team didn’t quit.

”There were a number of guys that struggled, some big guys that struggled, but those last few minutes some big guys stood up,” he said. ”No matter what happened we found a way to get a point.”

Demko Jim Plunkett Jersey , picked 36th overall in the 2014 draft, was called up from Utica of the AHL because backup goalie Anders Nilsson has the flu. He arrived in Vancouver late Friday night, then was in net for the game which started at 1 p.m. Vancouver time.

”My body was pretty confused,” he said. ”I was almost too tired to be nervous.”

Demko looked tight early in the game. Just 19 seconds into the first period Atkinson blasted a shot that hit the crossbar behind him. Four shots hit the post.

”I think the posts are bigger up here than they are in the AHL,” Demko said.

By the second period, Demko seemed more relaxed and looked sharp getting a pad on Atkinson’s shot during a 3-on-1 Columbus breakaway.

”I thought he looked good,” Canucks coach Travis Green said. ”I don’t think he looked out of place. … He’s confident enough to do what he does.”

Jokinen gave Vancouver a 3-1 lead at 5:14 of the third period. He took Jake Virtanen’s pass from behind the net and sent a shot over Korpisalo’s blocker. It was Jokinen’s third goal since coming to Vancouver along with center Tyler Motte at the trade deadline in a deal that sent Thomas Vanek to Columbus.

”Every time you play against your old team you want to show they made a mistake letting you go,” Jokinen said. ”For sure I had extra motivation.”

He also assisted on Horvat’s goal later in the period Ali Marpet Jersey , giving him five assists and eight points in 11 games with the Canucks.

The Canucks scored goals 1:44 apart in the second period to take a 2-1 lead.

Archibald tied it at 11:53. His shot from the faceoff circle looked to be tipped by a Columbus defenseman. Korpisalo still managed to get a piece of the puck but it went off his glove and into the net. Ashton Saunter, another callup from Utica, earned an assist for his first NHL point.

Goldobin put Vancouver ahead on a pretty give-and-go with Jokinen, scoring his sixth of the season on a sharp-angle shot.

The Blue Jackets opened the scoring at 13:55 of the first period, just seven seconds after Daniel Sedin was called for tripping. Jones scored after taking a pass from Atkinson and ripping a shot from the blue line. Demko looked slow at moving across his crease on the play.

NOTES: Jones’ two-point night gave him 54 points, setting a Columbus record for a defenseman. … Blue Jacket D Markus Nutivaara left the game in the second period with an upper-body injury. … Sedin’s 54 penalty minutes is the most in his 17-year career with the Canucks. He had 50 minutes in 2007-08. … The last time Vancouver won four consecutive games was Oct. 20-26.
