The Florida Panthers will distribute the last of six 2013-14 bobbleheads on Friday Apr. 4. The Panthers Brian Skrudland bobbles will be an in-game giveaway to the first 10,000 fans in attendance to the Panthers-Flames game.
The Panthers’ 2013-14 bobble series promotion coincides with the Panthers’ 20th anniversary. The series features five players and one general manager.
Earlier this year, the Panthers celebrated Bobble Nights for John Vanbiesbrouck (Dec. 13), Pavel Bure (Jan. 24), Tim Thomas (Mar. 9), Dale Tallon (Mar. 14) and Scott Mellanby (Mar. 16).
Skrudland was a Stanley Cup winner with the Montréal Canadiens before joining the expansion Panthers in 1993-94. He served as the team’s first captain for four seasons. In 1996, he helped the Panthers win the Prince of Wales Trophy to reach the Stanley Cup final.
This 2013-14 season, other NHL teams like the Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings and Minnesota Wild have also distributed hockey bobbles.
