The Florida Panthers will distribute the third of six 2013-14 bobbleheads on Sunday March 9. The Panthers Tim Thomas bobbles will be an in-game giveaway to the first 10,000 fans in attendance to the Panthers-Bruins 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) and Pavel Bure (Jan. 24). Still to come, the Panthers will distribute Dale Tallon bobbles on March 14, Scott Mellanby bobbles on March 16, and Brian Skrudland bobbles on Apr. 2.
Tim Thomas was a two-time Vézina Trophy with the Boston Bruins, winning the top goaltender award in 2008-09 and 2010-11. He joined the Florida Panthers before the 2013-14 season, but was traded to the Dallas Stars on deadline day earlier this week.
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.
