On a special summer edition of FOX Sports Florida's "Inside The Panthers," host Frank Forte takes a look at the top prospects in the 2010 NHL entry draft, which will be held June 25th and 26th in Los Angeles. The Panthers hold the 3rd overall choice in the draft.
FOX Sports Florida traveled to Toronto for the league’s annual scouting combine, where potential draft picks are put through a battery of physical tests and interviews so teams can better determine if they are the “right fit” for their franchise.
"Inside the Panthers: 2010 Draft Preview" premieres SATURDAY, JUNE 12, at 3:30pm ET on FOX Sports Florida. Replays include 6/15, 5pm; 6/19, 9:30am; & 6/20, 5pm.
Forte has an exclusive one-on-one interview with new Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon, who prior to joining the Cats, was the architect of the now Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
Viewers will hear from Panthers head amateur scout Scott Luce, strength and conditioning coach Craig Slaunwhite and several prospects who rank high on the Panthers draft list.
FOX Sports Florida also has a special look at Coral Springs, FL resident Andrew Yogan, who will be the first player to be chosen in an NHL draft. Yogan was born in Florida and learned the game from the ground up at the Panthers Incredible Ice facility, playing in the Panthers junior hockey program before moving to Canada at age 15 to compete in the Ontario Hockey League, that nation’s top feeder league for the NHL.
