The Florida Panthers have 13 games left on the schedule and were slated to face the Dallas Stars Thursday night in Texas. That was until the NHL officially suspended their season due to fears from the Coronavirus.

This puts a halt to all games and broadcasts which were played right here on the Fox Sports 640 Radio Network.

The Panthers were to host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night at the BB&T Center.

With the NHL season on hiatus, Florida (35-26-8) sits only three points out of a playoff spot. The Panthers were looking to break the curse as the team has missed the postseason in 18 of the past 20 seasons.

The NHL becomes the 4th professional sport to officially suspend its season.
