NHL: Florida Panthers reveal layoffs

Associated PressSeptember 19, 2012 

— The Florida Panthers announced the layoffs of an unknown number of staff members Tuesday, only the third full day of the NHL’s lockout.

The Panthers are believed to be the NHL’s second team to publicly announce layoffs since the league’s collective bargaining agreement with its players expired Saturday night.

The Ottawa Senators have already had layoffs and full-time employees have been placed on a reduced work week.

As of Tuesday, the Panthers listed 149 employees on its staff directory.
