While they aren't one of the most talked about teams in the National Hockey League, 2015 was a pretty good year for the Florida Panthers, and as a result one of the guiding hands behind the team has been rewarded.
The always budget concious Panthers have loosened their purse strings and have given general manager Dale Tallon a three year contract extension, this just weeks after the Panthers were awarded nearly $90 million dollars in public money.
The team released the following statement:
Dale and Tom bring a wealth of leadership, credibility and hockey experience that will enrich our organization for years to come. We have benefited tremendously from their expertise already. The success of both our NHL and AHL clubs this season is a direct result of Dale and Tom's leadership and stewardship. With the stability provided by the recent Broward County Commissioners vote, we look forward to continuing to strengthen our team both on and off the ice as we work towards the singular goal of winning the Stanley Cup.
