Based in Sunrise, Florida, the Florida Panthers are an NHL franchise playing in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division. Founded in 1993, the Panthers became the southernmost team in the NHL. They have made their home at the BB&T Center since their start.
As one of the most underrated programs in recent years, the Panthers started off strongly, making their first Stanley Cup finals appearance in 1996, the same year that the infamous “rat-trick” came into existence. Earning a second shot at the Stanley Cup in 12 years, the Panthers qualified for the Stanley Cup Finals in 2012, but fell short of a victory. Despite a lack of Stanley Cup wins, the Panthers have had some of the league’s top players wear their uniform, including Rob Niedermayer, Scott Mellanby, Olli Jokinen and Stephen Weiss. Bringing home one conference title and one division title, the Panthers are constantly striving to reach the next level.
