The Florida Panthers may be playing in a new building tonight when they take on the Coyotes at the new Mullett Arena, but the Arizona team they face has more than a couple of familiar faces.

Three players in the Arizona lineup all played for the Panthers and one is a former player on the Jr. Panthers from South Florida.

Of course, with all the changes to the team’s roster over the past few years, only a couple of players played those the current Coyotes.

The biggest name, obviously, is center Nick Bjugstad who was traded to the Penguins in 2019. Bjugstad was the 19th overall pick in Dale Tallon’s first draft with the Panthers in 2010.

Lawson Crouse was also a first-round pick of the Panthers, taken 11th overall at the draft held in Sunrise in 2015.

Defenseman Josh Brown was drafted with MacKenzie Weegar in 2013 and spent five  seasons with the Panthers’ organization and played in 93 NHL games with Florida.

Shayne Gotisbehere is in his second season with the Coyotes after starting his career with the Flyers. He is a native of South Florida.

Jakub Chychrun, the son of Florida television analyst Jeff, is also from South Florida but the defenseman is injured and will not play against the Panthers.

If that’s not enough connections, former Panthers Cory Stillman and John Madden are assistant coaches.
