"We are extremely pleased with the outstanding response for season seats, mini plans and groups for the upcoming season," Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chad Johnson said.

Florida Panthers General Manager Mike Keenan has worked diligently acquiring several skilled and experienced players who will make a significant impact in the Panthers lineup.
