Good morning folks and welcome to the latest installment of Rats Roundup! It was a busy week for the Panthers, from single game tickets going on sale to the announcement of a historic hockey clinic for the Cats and more!
CATS IN THE CARIBBEAN
The Panthers are all about spreading the game of hockey, so why stop in Florida?
The Cats will be heading to Icetopia Skating Rink Wildey, Barbados as part of the Panthers youth hockey and community outreach initiatives. They will be the first NHL team to host a hockey clinic in the Caribbean, and will send defensemen Alex Petrovic and Ian McCoshen as head instructors.
Joining Petrovic and McCoshen on the trip will be Panthers alumni and Vice President, Business Operations Shawn Thornton and Vice President of Broadcasting and Alumni Randy Moller.

HUBERDEAU BACK ON TRACK
