In the 2011-12 season, the Florida Panthers achieved something they never had before by winning the Southeast Division title and making the playoffs for the first time in 12 years. In the strike-shortened season of 2012-13, there was regression, but that shouldn’t dampen the spirits of Panthers fans. This Florida Panthers team is absolutely loaded with young prospects. While it may take some time to gel, the future in South Florida is extremely bright.
A Brief History
Entering the league prior to the 1993-94 season, the Florida Panthers were founded by business magnate Wayne Huzienga, who also once owned the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Marlins. Just two years into their existence, the Panthers shocked the rest of the NHL by making a run all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals where they would lose to the Colorado Avalanche.
Since that season, the Florida Panthers have qualified for the post-season just three times. Now controlled by Cliff Viner and Sunrise Sports and Entertainment, the Panthers are poised for a rebound. Last year’s injury-plagued season notwithstanding, the organization is moving in the right direction. And fast.
2013-14 and Beyond
2013 Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau is just one of the electrifying players who will be suiting up for the Florida Panthers in the years to come. With big-time prospect Sasha Barkov coming in alongside Nick Bjugstad and Rocco Grimaldi, the Panthers, should they avoid the injury bug, have way more talent than opposing defenses can handle.
In addition to the power on the offensive end of the ice, young guns on defense include Dmitry Kulikov and Erik Gudbranson. And in goal, the Panthers have one of the NHL’s most talented up-and-comers in Jakob Markstrom.
