Panthers cancel rookie tournament
The Florida Panthers have canceled what would have been their third annual rookie camp and tournament.

The Florida Panthers have canceled what would have been their third annual rookie camp and tournament.

The camp, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel, was to include rookies from the Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins and was to be held from Sept. 15-19 at Saveology.com Iceplex. The tournament included the Panthers, Nashville Predators and Lightning last year.

The Detroit Red Wings last week canceled their annual rookie prospect tournament traditionally held in Traverse City, Mich.

The Panthers announced that the camp was canceled, "due to the uncertainty surrounding the CBA." The current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires on Sept. 15. Negotiations on a new CBA will resume Tuesday in New York.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
