The Florida Panthers are retiring the Kevin Spacey in Space tradition
The Florida Panthers are retiring one of the NHL’s most fun traditions.
After being eliminated from the playoffs by the Islanders, the Panthers say they’re done awarding a hoodie with Kevin Spacey’s face floating in outer space to each game’s MVP.
The whole thing began in December during a 12-game winning streak, when Thornton found the hoodie on a trip to New York. Eventually the Panthers started selling the hoodies and donating the proceeds to charity.
Spacey himself was a fan of the tradition, and even showed up at a game last month sporting the hoodie.
We’ll always have the memories.
