Florida Panthers pay tribute to Parkland high school shooting victims, Roberto Luongo gives emotional speech

Before the game, the arena video screen showed the names and faces of each of the 17 students who were killed on Valentine’s Day in nearby Parkland. The darkened ice was then illuminated with 17 circles of light, with a student’s name inside each one.

Players from both teams stood for the ceremony, some wiping tears from their eyes.

Luongo followed with an emotional address about how he has lived in Parkland for 12 years with his wife and children and how much he loves the town. He lauded the bravery of those who lost their lives trying to save others and spoke about how inspiring the students have been in coping with the tragedy.

…Florida players will wear Marjory Stoneman Douglas logos on their helmets and MSD uniform patches for the remainder of the season.
