Our long offseason is about to come to an end as the Florida Panthers are town practicing on their own, ready to report for training camp in a week.
The Panthers are expected to report for physicals next Sunday with the first full on-ice practice on Monday, Jan. 4.
It will be the first full practice for the Panthers since the day before they were bounced out of Toronto.
A lot has changed since the summer.
Happy New Year, hockey fans.
