About the Florida Panthers Hockey Club The Florida Panthers entered the National Hockey League in 1993, becoming one of the most successful first-year expansion teams in history. By just their third season, the Panthers reached the 1996 Stanley Cup Final in memorable fashion during their 'Year of the Rat' run as fans in South Florida littered the ice with rubber rats in celebration of goals and wins. In 1998, the Panthers moved from Miami Arena to their current home in Sunrise, Fla., BB&T Center, where the club has won two division titles (2011-12 &; 2015-16), hosted the NHL Draft twice (2001 & 2015) and the NHL All-Star Game in 2003. The Florida Panthers are off to their best start in franchise history since 1996 and are competing in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference for the 2020-21 season.
