FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2015) — The Florida Panthers have made developing prospects a top priority over the years. FOX Sports Florida is proud to premiere an all-new episode of the "Inside the Panthers" series aimed at highlighting the team’s search and tutelage of young talent. On Thursday, Nov. 12 at 10:30 p.m., "Inside the Panthers: Eye on the Future: Bryan McCabe" will be televised statewide upon conclusion of the Florida vs. Buffalo Sabres game.
"Inside the Panthers: Eye on the Future: Bryan McCabe" spotlights the 16-year NHL veteran defenseman and former Panthers captain, who now works as the team’s Director of Player Development. Hosted by Jessica Blaylock, the show will provide fans with an all-access look at how McCabe approaches his job both on the ice and observing from the stands, including a trip to Cornell University where he evaluated Panthers draft pick Matt Buckles. McCabe was hired by the Panthers to work with the organization’s young prospects following his retirement as a player at the end of the 2010-11 season. The show revisits his playing career and details how his experience playing hockey has helped frame his approach to his job today.
The show features exclusive interviews with General Manager Dale Tallon, Executive Chairman Peter Luukko, former teammates Radek Dvorak, Brent Severyn and Anders Eriksson, current Panthers Alex Petrovic and Quinton Howden, plus a quartet of prospects in Buckles, Connor Brickley, Mike Matheson and Josh Brown.
