SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment today announced that the Florida Panthers will host the South Florida Coaching Clinic on Sunday, Dec. 16 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the BB&T Center. The clinic is open to all South Florida and USA Hockey registered coaches with any level of experience.
Florida Panthers Head Coach Kevin Dineen will serve as the head instructor, along with presentations from Craig Ramsay (Panthers Assistant Coach/Stanley Cup Champion/Former NHL Player), Robb Tallas (Panthers Goalie Coach/Former NHL Goalie) and other special instructors.
