FOX Sports Florida to Premiere “Inside the Panthers: 2013 NHL Draft”

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — On Wednesday, July 24, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., FOX Sports Florida will premiere a special edition of “Inside the Panthers,” highlighting the Panthers 2013 NHL Draft, the selection of Aleksander Barkov as the second overall choice, and the recently completed Development Camp at Iceplex.

With a top pick in the Draft, Florida had an opportunity to add a “franchise-caliber” player to the already impressive list of prospects and young NHL players. The Cats ultimately chose Barkov, the top-ranked European skater. Fans will get an exclusive look into the Panthers’ meetings with Barkov prior to the selection, the selection itself on June 30th at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, and the post-pick interviews.

Hosted by Frank Forte, this episode of “Inside the Panthers” will feature interviews with Panthers GM Dale Tallon, Aleksander Barkov, Calder Trophy winner Jonathon Huberdeau, Director of Player Development Brian Skrudland, and Panthers’ President Michael R. Yormark as they discuss the 2013 NHL Draft, the Panthers Development Camp, and the young and improving team that will soon take the ice for the Panthers 20th Anniversary season.
