Hurricane Relief

Mike Matheson and his wife, Emily, teamed up with UNICEF USA to aid The Bahamas in recovering from Hurricane Dorian.

Tweet from @mmatheson19: Hurricane Dorian was the strongest hurricane in Bahamas history. The Bahamas are really special to @EmilyPfalzer and I. Join us in supporting relief efforts- We will be matching your donations up to $25,000. Every little bit helps! @UNICEFUSA @FlaPanthers

"When you saw the videos, everything was just demolished or underwater," said Mike, who is entering his fourth full season with the Florida Panthers. "It was so bad that they're having a really hard time getting stuff over there. Our first thought was, 'We'd love to help. What can we do?' We were thinking of doing a donation drive and stuff like that, but it sounded, for the most part, that they've been able to get people to donate stuff. They have a lot of supplies, but the difficulty is just getting it over there and having the money to do that."

The couple will match any donation up to $25,000. To donate to their cause, click HERE.

Territory Talk Frank Vatrano joined this week's installment of Territory Talk to talk about the team's expectations heading into the new season, playing with a quick pace under Joel Quenneville and how he has gotten to know Sergei Bobrovsky. Listen below!
