About the Florida Panthers
The Florida Panthers are an NHL franchise that was first established as an expansion team in 1993. The The Florida Panthers entered the National Hockey League in 1993, becoming one of the most successful first-year expansion teams in NHL 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., FLA Live Arena, 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. FLA Live Arena will also host the upcoming 2023 NHL All-Star Game, welcoming the best talent from around the league to South Florida. Led by owner Vincent J. Viola since September of 2013, the organization has placed an emphasis on building a winning culture while keeping a focus on investing in and spending time in the South Florida community. Under General Manager Bill Zito, the Panthers have grown into a fast, dynamic and exciting team boasting 2020-21 Frank J. Selke Trophy Recipient Aleksander Barkov, elite young playmakers Jonathan Huberdeau, Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett, Anthony Duclair and Carter Verhaeghe, stalwart defensemen Aaron Ekblad and MacKenzie Weegar, two-time Vezina Trophy recipient Sergei Bobrovsky and a deep roster of proven and promising NHL talent. The Panthers established themselves as one of the best offensive teams in the NHL in 2021-22, entering the All-Star Break atop the league standings in goals scored and points earned, while Jonathan Huberdeau paced all skaters in assists and points. The Cats have also broken out as one of the league’s best home-ice teams, taking advantage of the South Florida faithful to turn FLA Live Arena into one of the most imposing environments in sports.
