Panthers practice facility expansion nears completion, but lots of skating options for locals in region

12

From The Sentinel's Sarah Talalay: Meanwhile, the Panthers go from a meager training facility wedged into the original building to a sparkling 16,000-square-foot area with a separate entrance and players lounge with kitchen, hydrotherapy tubs, and gym. The team will practice on the third rink, which will be available for public programs when the Panthers are not using it. Panthers coach Pete DeBoer said the training center will be among the nicest in the NHL, inviting for current players and attractive to free agents. "It wasn't the first place on the tour," DeBoer said. But the expansion will change that: "When players are coming in from out of town, we'll probably head from the airport right to the new practice facility." Lots more from Sarah on area skating facilities as well.
