The Panthers, who play less than 15 miles from the high school, honored the victims with a special moment of silence before Thursday's game against the Calgary Flames.

Goalie Roberto Luongo, a Parkland resident, has honored the shooting victims all season on his usual mask. Thursday, he wore a special mask for the anniversary. 

The team has a more extended ceremony planned for Sunday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.
