Miama - Sep. 12, 2011 - Former Florida Panthers LW Cory Stillman today announced his intentions to retire from the National Hockey League. Stillman retires earning two Stanley Cup championships (Tampa Bay in 2004 & Carolina in 2006) throughout his 16-year NHL playing career. Effective immediately, Stillman will join the Panthers hockey operations staff as the club’s player development assistant and will work closely with Director of Player Development Brian Skrudland in monitoring the progress and development of the organization’s prospects.

“This game has been great to me,” said Stillman. “I am forever grateful to all those players, coaches, general managers and everyone that I have been associated with throughout my playing career. Furthermore, I appreciate all the support that my wife Mara, my parents Bill and Sandra and children have provided me. At this time, the Panthers have provided me with an excellent opportunity to work with the talented players in our organization and I look forward to starting another chapter in my career.”

“Cory is a first-class act who was well respected in our locker room and throughout the league,” said Florida Panthers Executive Vice President & General Manager Dale Tallon. “We are honored to have someone with his character and hockey intellect join our hockey operations staff.”
