Florida will play a pair of neutral ice preseason games as it will close the exhibition season on Oct. 8 with a game against the New Jersey Devils at the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York.
“We are very excited to showcase Panthers hockey outside of South Florida to a great hockey town like London,” Florida executive chairman Peter Luukko said in a statement.
“Budweiser Gardens is a first class facility and an excellent venue for fans to watch two exciting, 2015-16 division-winning teams, Florida and Dallas face off. It is sure to be a terrific event for both the players and the city of London.”
