Before the Panthers' home game against the Capitals, Luongo's team honored the 17 victims who were killed in a mass shooting at nearby Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14.

Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, a Parkland resident, gave an emotional statement about the bravery of those who lost their lives trying to save others and how inspiring the students have been coping with the tragedy.

The Panthers played their first home game since the tragedy. My wife was born and raised in that area.

The team dedicated Thursday's game, their first home appearance since the attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, to honouring the victims and their families.

"I live in Parkland", Luongo said.

Seventeen people died when a gunman opened fire at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which is about 10 miles from the Panthers' arena in Sunrise and just less than four miles from their practice facility in Coral Springs. "No child should ever have to go through that, it's bad". Its awful. It's time for us as a community to take action.

"It's enough, enough is enough, we gotta take action". "I think things kind of changed when I got the news that my kids were safe". "You guys are courageous. You guys are what is giving us hope for the future".
