Panthers to pay tribute to victims of Fort Lauderdale shooting
Last week, a number of Florida Panthers players paid tribute to the victims of the mass shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport.
On Friday, the entire team will do the same when the Panthers take on the New York Islanders.
For Friday’s home game against the New York Islanders — and for Saturday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets as well — the hockey team will wear decals with the airport’s code letters ‘FLL.’
“We wanted to pay tribute to the victims and their families,” team president and CEO Matthew Caldwell said.
“We wanted to show our support for the Fort Lauderdale and South Florida community. It was important to our players. This hit close to home. We wanted to show we remember and feel for those who are still suffering from this terrible act of violence.”
