The Den Of Honor, located on the BankAtlantic Center’s plaza level between sections 115 and 121, pays tribute to the players, coaches, personalities and moments that have played a significant role in Panthers history from the announcement of the franchise in the early 90s to the present. It also honors the people and organizations that continue to help South Florida grow as a hotbed for youth and high school hockey.

In South Florida, a place where sunlight drapes the coastline and warms the earth, where bodies of water remain serene and unfrozen, the sport of ice hockey has thrived.

The South Florida Hockey Den of Honor pays homage to the individuals and organizations that have cultivated this great sport, that have nurtured it and watched it develop.

Bequeathed by the Florida Panthers Hockey Club on the twentieth day of March in the year two thousand and ten, the Den of Honor represents a link to the past. It is a touchstone to the days between now and then, when rats rain down from above, when children grow up with hockey dreams, when high schools compete far and wide, when local rinks teem with ardent skaters, when Florida Panthers games invite both passion and fanfare.

From the inception of the Panthers franchise in 1992, to the miracle Stanley Cup Finals run in ‘96, to the move to Sunrise two years later, to the deeds and drama of the current Cats, to the banner that is carried by high school and youth players, it is all represented – frozen in time – in these cases.

This Den of Honor is a time capsule for everything that hockey has meant to this region. But like the passion and excitement for the sport that continues to swell from Palm Beach to Broward to Miami-Dade, this place too will continue to grow with the moments and the memories that are still waiting to be honored.
