Florida Panthers dads are invited to New York for a two-game road trip

  • 02:48 •

The Florida Panthers had quite a few extra passengers on their two-game road trip earlier this week, bringing the fathers of 15 different players along for the ride as part of the franchise's first-ever Dads Trip.

"My dad's been a big part of my life," Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad said. "Not only in my daily life outside of hockey, but inside of hockey he's taught me just about everything I know, despite not having the experience that some guys have had playing some higher levels of hockey. He taught me quite a bit and it's got me to this point I think."

by Jameson Olive JamesonCoop /

Adam Mascherin is generating professional praise in the junior ranks.
It isn't just that Mascherin is scoring goals in bunches; it's also how he's scoring them. In the fall, Mascherin managed to garner headlines when a highlight-reel, coast-to-coast goal in overtime quickly transformed the Florida Panthers prospect into something of an overnight sensation on social media.

Panthers rookie defenseman lauds efforts of NHL/NHLPA Core Development Program

by Mike G. Morreale @mikemorrealeNHL / Correspondent

NEW YORK -- Florida Panthers defenseman Michael Matheson envisions helping players as a sports psychologist during life after hockey.

Matheson, 22, is a rookie, so it's something he doesn't necessarily have to think about right now. Still, preparing for the future is something readily available for any NHL player of any age with the launch of the NHL/NHLPA Core Development Program this season.
