by FOX Sports Florida @FOXPanthers /

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Oct. 8, 2019) - FOX Sports Florida, the television home of the Florida Panthers, will debut the season premiere of "Inside the Panthers LIVE" this evening before the start of Florida's game against the Carolina Hurricanes. Fans can tune in tonight starting at 6 p.m. as reporter Jessica Blaylock anchors the all-access look at new Panthers Head Coach Joel Quenneville, who ranks second in National Hockey League all-time coaching victories.

The show begins with an all-access one-on-one with host Craig Minervini and Coach Q. The pair will open the interview with a look back at Quenneville's playing days, which featured stints with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Rockies, Hartford Whalers and Washington Capitals. Coach Q discusses his coaching career to date, including an assistant coach role with the Colorado Avalanche with whom he won a Stanley Cup vs. the Panthers in 1996. Quenneville also speaks about the influence on his career from original Panthers Head Coach, the late Roger Neilson. From there, Coach Q touches upon his three Stanley Cup championship teams in Chicago, and the vital role played by current Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon, who helped build those Blackhawks teams.

Later in the show, current Panthers teammates Aaron Ekblad , Aleksander Barkov , Mike Matheson , Mike Hoffman and Anton Stralman pay their respects to Coach Q and the influence he is already having on the team. Coach Q also gives his thoughts on the Panthers young talent base. Craig and Coach have a few laughs talking about his favorite leisure activities, including horse racing. Rounding out the episode, Jessica will interview Tallon live on set before the "Panthers Live" pregame show at 6:30 p.m.
