Madison Square Garden, New York, January 22, 1994


This was the first All-Star game for the expansion Panthers team. Bob Kudelski (RW) and John Vanbiesbrouck (G) were selected to play in the game and both played a big part in the Eastern Conference's victory. Kudelski scored two goals, one of which tied the game with 6:01 left, and Vanbiesbrouck stopped 6 of 8 shots on goal in the third period to get the win for the East.

FleetCenter, Boston, January 20, 1996


The Panthers brought three representatives to the game, including Coach Doug MacLean, Scott Mellanby (RW) and John Vanbiesbrouck (G).

47th NHL All-Star Game
Eastern Conference 11 – Western Conference 7

48th NHL All-Star Game
North America 8 – World 7
GM Place, Vancouver, January 18, 1998


In the first of five All-Star games labeled the International Showdown, which featured a match-up of the best from North America versus the best from the rest of the world, the North American All-Stars edged the World All-Stars by one goal. North America overcame an early three goal deficit with the deciding goal coming from Mark Messier.

49th NHL All-Star Game
North America 8 – World 6
Ice Palace, Tampa Bay, January 24, 1999


The North American All-Stars defeated the World All-Stars for the 2nd straight year. This All-Star game featured Wayne Gretzky, who made his final All-Star appearance, recording one goal and two assists and received the game's MVP honors. Viktor Kozlov was selected as a Panther's representative but did not play due to a shoulder injury.



50th NHL All-Star Game
World 9 – North America 4
Air Canada Centre, Toronto, February 6, 2000


Panther players were featured on both teams in the World All-Star's first win over their North American counterparts. Ray Whitney (LW) had both a goal and an assist for the North Americans. Victor Kozlov (C) was selected to his second straight All-Star game as a Panther and recorded three assists for World All-Star's including two of Panthers teammate Pavel Bure's (RW) three goals. Bure was named the game's MVP after scoring three goals and adding an assist.

51st NHL All-Star Game
North America 14 – World 12
Pepsi Center, Colorado, February 4, 2001


Pavel Bure (RW) was the lone representative for the Cats at this All-Star game, adding two assists for the World All-Stars. The combined 26 goals scored by both teams turned out to be an All-Star game record. The game was still in doubt until Simon Gagne scored an unassisted goal at the 17:07 mark in the third period. Bill Guerin of the Bruins was named the game's MVP following his three goal and two assist performance.

52nd NHL All-Star Game
World 8 - North America 5

Western Conference 6 - Eastern Conference 5 (OT)
Office Depot Center, Sunrise, February 2, 2003


The Florida Panthers hosted their first ever All-Star game with Olli Jokinen representing the East as a member of the Cats. Jokinen had an outstanding performance in a losing effort with one goal and three assists. Jokinen might have been named the MVP if not for the magnificent five-point performance by East teammate Dany Heatley who finished with four goals, one assist, and the East's only successful shootout goal.

54th NHL All-Star Game
Eastern Conference 6 - Western Conference 4
Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, February 8, 2004

Joe Sakic recorded a hat-trick for the West and was named the game's MVP.
