With the NHL pausing the 2019-20 regular season on March 12 due to the concerns surrounding the coronavirus, NHL.com is taking stock of each of the League's 31 teams.

Today, a look at three memorable moments for the Florida Panthers at the pause:

 

Buy the numbers

Sergei Bobrovsky signed with the Florida Panthers on July 1, 2019, but the goalie's coveted No. 72 was taken by Frank Vatrano.

Bobrovsky got his number, but it cost him.

 

Veteran move

The Panthers not only honored United States Army veteran Victor Larronde, they moved him into a mortgage-free house.
