The Florida Panthers entered the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the fewest points among the final 16. 

Now just more than a month after the playoffs began, what the Panthers have done is shocking to many in the hockey world, but it isn't for a coach from Dauphin. Myles Fee was hired on as an assistant coach back in 2022 and a year later, he has helped Florida advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

Florida's run to the Cup included coming back from three games to one down against the Boston Bruins, who had a history-making regular season before the Panthers dumped the Toronto Maple Leafs. Then on Wednesday night, Matthew Tkachuk once again played the role of hero for the Panthers in a four-game sweep.

Florida will now play either Vegas or Dallas and that series could wrap up on Thursday evening. Fee, of Dauphin, is no stranger to being a part of a championship series. Back in 2019, Fee was a part of the coaching staff that led the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League to a Calder Cup championship.
