NHLThe Florida Panthers will kick off their 20th anniversary celebrations this Sunday June 30 at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The team will mark their 20th anniversary throughout the upcoming 2013-14 NHL season.

“The Florida Panthers 20th Anniversary Season is going to be a special one for our fans, partners, supporters, staff, players, coaches, and the entire South Florida community,” said SSE President Michael R. Yormark. “From the franchise’s inception, to the 1996 Eastern Conference Championship, to our most recent Division title, there is a wonderful history that we are excited to celebrate, while also honouring our incredible fans for two decades of loyal and passionate support.”

To mark the anniversary, the Panthers will wear a commemorative XX patch (the familiar Panther overtop “XX” for 20 years). Of note, the Panthers have promised “special giveaways and collectible merchandise.” More 20th anniversary campaign details will be announced on Sunday.

Both the Florida Panthers and Anaheim Ducks joined the NHL in 1993-94, the 25th and 26th teams.
