EXCLUSIVE: Is this the Florida Panthers' new logo? I have strong reason to believe that it is. pic.twitter.com/HOnrIynmSF— Paul Lukas (@UniWatch) April 26, 2016
Later in the day, the plot thickened when Chris Creamer of Sportslogo.net posted an article apparently verifying Lukas' tweet, writing that after checking with more than one of his reliable sources, that the leaked logo was indeed the real deal. The crew over there were even nice enough to do a mock-up which cleaned up and expanded on the image seen in Uni Watch's original tweet.
So, is the (new) Cat really out of the bag? It would seem to be the case, but the team, for now, has chosen to remain mum on the subject. Until official confirmation comes, we'll not have a definite answer until the new uniforms are revealed in full at the draft.

UPDATE: Panthers co-owner Doug Cifu has provided the first sneak peek of the new home uniform via Twitter.
Ok I promised a shot of the new uniform a month ago...here's a peak (and no we didn't sign anyone named "Player"). pic.twitter.com/hBvhffe8er— Doug Cifu (@Dougielarge) April 29, 2016
Looks like the new home uniform will have a red body, no shoulder yoke, a navy blue collar, white player names, and white numbers with a metallic gold trim.
