NHLThe Florida Panthers will distribute the first of six 2013-14 bobbleheads on Friday Dec. 13. The John Vanbiesbrouck bobble will be an in-game giveaway to the first 10,000 fans in attendance to the Panthers-Capitals game.

The bobble series promotion coincides with the Panthers’ 20th anniversary. The series features five players and one general manager. The Vanbiesbrouck bobble is sponsored by XFINITY.

Following the Vanbiesbrouck promotion, the other five bobbles will be distributed in the new year. The five promotional nights are Pavel Bure on Jan. 24, Tim Thomas on Mar. 9, Dale Tallon on Mar. 14, Scott Mellanby on Mar. 16, and Brian Skrudland on Apr. 4.

Vanbiesbrouck was the star goalie on the Panthers run to the 1996 Stanley Cup final. A Rangers’ MVP and NHL First Team All-Star in 1985-86, he was an NHL Second Team All-Star in the Panthers’ inaugural 1993-94 campaign. In the 1995-96 playoffs, he won 12 games in three rounds before the Panthers lost the final to the Avalanche.
