The Florida Panthers organization extends its sincere condolences to the Huizenga family. We are inspired by Marti Huizenga's strength and her commitment to the community, to the arts, to professional sports in South Florida and to the cause of students, women and children. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Huizenga's family at this difficult time.
