About the Florida Panthers:

The Florida Panthers entered the National Hockey League in 1993, becoming one of the most successful first-year expansion teams in history. By just their third season, the Panthers reached the 1996 Stanley Cup Final in memorable fashion during their ‘Year of the Rat’ run as fans in South Florida littered the ice with rubber rats in celebration of goals and wins. In 1998, the Panthers moved from Miami Arena to their current home in Sunrise, Fla., BB&T Center, where the club has won two division titles (2011-12 & 2015-16), hosted the NHL Draft twice (2001 & 2015) and the NHL All-Star Game in 2003. Led by owner Vincent J. Viola since Sept. 27, 2013, the organization has placed an emphasis on building a winning culture in South Florida and becoming stewards of its community. Under President of Hockey Operations & General Manager Dale Tallon and Head Coach Joel Quenneville, the Panthers have grown into a fast, dynamic and exciting team boasting talented young All-Stars Aleksander Barkov, Aaron Ekblad and Vincent Trocheck, one of the league’s top goaltenders Sergei Bobrovsky, proven point producers, Jonathan Huberdeau, Evgenii Dadonov and Mike Hoffman and an up-and-coming group of prospects set to make the club contenders for years to come.
