Panthers Hire John Madden As Pro Scout

Panthers_John_Madden_2013 [1]The Florida Panthers signed a “proven winner” in goalie Tim Thomas, but he’s not the only Stanley Cup champion they added to the mix. The team also added retired forward John Madden as a pro scout on Thursday.

“We are thrilled to have John join our scouting staff,” Panthers GM Dale Tallon said. “He is a three-time Stanley Cup winner and brings to our organization a wealth of experience and knowledge of the game.”

The 40-year-old played his last NHL games with the Panthers in 2011-12, collecting three goals in 31 games played.
