Friday Web Hits-June 27, 2014

It’s finally here! It’s Draft Day! If you feel like a little kid on Christmas Eve, don’t worry, you are in good company. There will be plenty of Panthers fans pumped up for the draft at our Draft Party at Bokamper’s Sports Bar & Grill – Plantation, so feel free to stop on by and celebrate the draft with the best crew in town!

With the draft on the way, the introduction of Gerard Gallant as the Florida Panthers new head coach, and the release of the regular season schedule, it has been a crazy week filled with tons of awesome Panthers content, here is a look at what you may have missed:

You may not be familiar with Florida Panthers Director of Scouting, Scott Luce, but he has been the man behind the Florida Panthers drafts since 2003. The London Free Press sat down with Luce for a fascinating peek behind the curtain at what it’s like on the front lines of an NHL Draft. 

The Panthers held a press conference on Monday to introduce new head coach, Gerard Gallant. Check out our inside look at the hiring, as well as some facts that you may not have known about the Panthers new bench boss.

 Have you ever wondered what you would buy first if you got drafted by the NHL? Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau and fellow top picks from the 2011 draft sat down with Nerdwallet.com to talk about what it is like dealing with your finances as a young NHL star.

 Because it’s Friday and it’s draft day (let’s be honest, you weren’t getting any work done anyway) check out this behind the scenes look at the draft from ESPN.com’s Scott Burnside.

Still can’t get your Panthers draft fix? Check out Hockey’s Future’s 2014 Florida Panthers NHL Draft Preview.

The Florida Panthers regular season schedule was announced on Sunday and here are ten storylines to look forward to for the 2014-15 season.
