Florida will play the remainder of their Eastern Conference opponents three times, with the Panthers hosting Montreal, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo twice at the BB&T Center this season. Florida will not face any Western Conference teams during the regular season.

The Panthers have unveiled two new marketing campaigns “Get It On” and “7th Man” that will be prevalent in all of the Panthers’ marketing and media outlets including outdoor, in-arena, television, radio, print, online, and more.

In addition, “7th Man” will include a number of unique experiential opportunities for fans and season ticket holders to watch and take part in throughout the season. These opportunities, which will take place as part of Panthers home games, as well as other off-site events, will be announced in the build-up to Opening Night, during the Panthers home opener, and over the course of the season.

The “7th Man” will also play a major role in the game presentation for Cats home games as fans support the team during their Division title defense.
