Panthers inviting the public to try out - for goalie
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) The Florida Panthers are holding goalie auditions for anyone who wants to play.
The Panthers announced Thursday plans for a contest that will give someone a amateur try-out contract and the chance to be Florida's backup practice goalie - for one day.
Panthers executive chairman Peter Luukko says the team expects ''a great turnout for this ultimate fan experience.'' Successful applicants will be invited to a tryout on March 16, two finalists will then go head-to-head during an intermission of Florida's game against Montreal on March 17, and the winner gets a contract.
