When asked why the Florida Panthers were moving training camp to the BB&T Center in Sunrise, new GM Bill Zito said the decision was “easier than you think.’’ It has a lot to do with the outdoor space.
On Sunday, the players will officially report for physicals with the first practice coming Monday morning in Sunrise.
Unlike past years, the Panthers will hold the entirety of their training camp at the BB&T Center instead of their training facility in Coral Springs.
Zito, hired as Florida’s new general manager on Sept. 1, says it just made more sense for the Panthers to hole up in one location rather than split things between the arena and training facility.
The BB&T Center, Zito explained, offered much more room for the Panthers to spread out not necessarily on the ice, but off of it.
