The home of the Florida Panthers received a new name Monday, with the arena in Sunrise, Fla., now called the BB&T Center. The building had been known since 2005 as the BankAtlantic Center.

The arena opened in 1998 to serve as the home of the Panthers, replacing Miami Arena.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
