Panthers Team History

The Florida Panthers are a professional ice hockey team in the United States. And they compete in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The Florida Panthers were founded in 1993. But what is the origin of the team’s name?

In fact, Florida panthers are indigenous to Southern Florida. And they live in pinelands, tropical hammocks, and mixed freshwater swamp forests.

Moreover, the Florida panther officially became Florida’s state animal in 1983, which was 10 years before the team was founded.

The Panthers have won 2 division championships. And their last division title was in the 2015-16 season.

In addition, the Panthers have won one conference championship, which was in the 1995-96 season. Unfortunately, they lost in the finals to the Colorado Avalanche.

While the Panthers have qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs five times, they have never advanced into the 2nd round since 1996,

Originally, the Panthers played home games at the Miami Arena in Miami, Florida. However, they moved to the BB&T Center in 1998.

As a mixed-use facility, the arena also hosts concerts and other events. And it is located at 1 Panther Parkway in Sunrise, Florida.

A Word to the Wise

While most of these venues tend to attract Florida Panthers fans on game day, there are no guarantees.

Sometimes they won’t turn on the sound. Other times they might show other events. And there is always the chance the venue might be booked for special events.

Also, fans sometimes migrate to other venues. And bars sometimes close.

Therefore, you should always call ahead to make sure that the game you want to watch will be broadcast.
