The Panthers have played their home games at the BankAtlantic Center since 1998.

The Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in Sunrise, Florida. They play in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL). The team joined the NHL in 1993 as an expansion team, and won their first Eastern Conference championship in 1996. The Panthers have played their home games at the BankAtlantic Center, which was first named the Broward County Civic Arena, since 1998.[1] The Panthers are owned by Alan Cohen and Bernie Kosar, and Jacques Martin, the former head coach of the Panthers, is their general manager.[2][3]

There have been 10 head coaches for the Panthers franchise. The team's first head coach was Roger Neilson, who coached for two complete seasons from 1993 to 1995.[4] Jacques Martin is the franchise's all-time leader for the most regular-season games coached (246), the most regular-season game wins (110), and the most regular-season points (256); Doug MacLean is the franchise's all-time leader for the most playoff games coached (27), and the most playoff-game wins (13). Murray's brother, Terry Murray, has also coached the Panthers, right after his brother Bryan.[5][6] MacLean is the only coach to have won the Prince of Wales Trophy with the Panthers; they lost the 1996 Stanley Cup Finals to the Colorado Avalanche.[7][8] Neilson is the only Panthers coach to have been elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame; he was inducted as a builder. Duane Sutter and Peter DeBoer have spent their entire NHL coaching careers with the Panthers. DeBoer has been the head coach of the Panthers since 2008.[9]

NotesEdit

  • a  A running total of the number of coaches of the Panthers. Thus, any coach who has two or more separate terms as head coach is only counted once.
  • b  Before the 2005–06 season, the NHL instituted a penalty shootout for regular season games that remained tied after a five-minute overtime period, which prevented ties.[18]
  • c  In hockey, the winning percentage is calculated by dividing points by maximum possible points.
  • d  Each year is linked to an article about that particular NHL season.
