Maybe Joel Quenneville was destined to be in the Florida Panthers organization.

The Panthers coach was captured bearing a striking resemblance to the team's logo during a press conference Tuesday.

Quenneville, who was hired April 8, was caught striking a similar pose as the panther on Florida's shield by NHL.com columnist Nick Cotsonika. Quenneville has not resembled the logos of the St. Louis Blues, Colorado Avalanche or Chicago Blackhawks, the three previous teams he coached.

The photo was captured when Quenneville helped introduce the Panthers free agent signings, goalie Sergei Bobrovsky, defenseman Anton Stralman and forwards Noel Acciari and Brett Connolly. Each player agreed to terms on a contract with the Panthers on Monday.
