SUNRISE, FL – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that the Florida Panthers were ranked No. 1 in Hockey’s Future 2011-12 Postseason Team Rankings based on the number of top prospects in the organization and depth of talent. The Panthers held the top spot among all NHL clubs for the second consecutive ranking, and have been listed among the Top 4 NHL organizations in the last four bi-annual rankings.

The article can be viewed here.

From Hockey’s Future:

“With NHL talent heading every position–some of whom have All-Star potential, the Florida Panthers are set to open the tap on a stream of prospects that will start pouring into south Florida for the foreseeable future. In fact, the system is so loaded with talent, the Panthers could split off a second team entirely and have a somewhat competitive squad based only on prospects.”

The Panthers’ organizational depth chart is highlighted by “firepower, size, and speed up front” from forwards Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad, and Quinton Howden supply, with nods to Colby Robak and Alex Petrovic on the blue line. Top-goalie prospect Jacob Markstrom “is arguably the best netminder in the world outside of the NHL.”

Fans can catch many of Florida’s top prospects on the ice during Panthers Development Camp at Saveology.com Iceplex during the first week of July. More event details will be released in the upcoming weeks.
