Deals and Steals- Milton Keynes Edition
Elite League action is back in Nottingham with a showdown against the Milton Keynes Lightning.
It's the first ever time this fixture has taken place, with the Lightning having only joined the Elite League this season.
The Panthers may have never seen this squad as a whole before, but they are very similar with some of their players.
Guillaume Doucet, a former Panther, is one of their top scorers and their standout netminder will be very familiar to Panthers fans.
Miika Wiikman joined originally as injury cover but forced his way into the starter's job with displays that Panthers fans will remember very fondly.
It should be a warm welcome for Miika from the Panthers Nation in a great game of hockey, and a battle of top quality netminders!
On a Panthers game night, it’s just as much about what’s going on off the ice too!

We'd also like to remind supporters that the new security measures are still being enforced.
The arena has done a great job of implementing it so far and fans have been very supportive of the new safety and security measures.
However, fans are urged to allow extra time to get to their seats. There will be bag searches and the restrictions on sizes will be enforced.
There will be no lockers in general use at Panthers’ home games, there will be pat downs and wand searches going on in the search lanes too.
Please follow the arena staff instructions when leaving the arena after the games this year.
New marquees have been installed outside the arena for the security lanes so fans will not be too affected by adverse weather while queueing for security.
There will be reduced exits available but the number in use will vary depending on the size of the crowds at games.
PANTHERS’ VIP desk, is again on LEVEL THREE…that’s one flight of stairs up from the foyer and one flight of steps down from the hospitality boxes.
We have parking deals lined up with Nottingham City Car Parks at Broadmarsh East and Sheriff’s Lodge. It’s going to be cheap on a match by match basis for fans, but it’s cheaper still if you grab a parking season ticket. For more information call 0115 8761444.
The arena catering team will be feeding the Panthers’ players after their home games this season. Meanwhile there has been a revamp for fans on the concourse too with more choices on the food front and reduced prices for beer, tea and coffee. Every time Panthers kill off a penalty on the ice there will be ten pence knocked off the price of a pint in the ENCORE bar after the final hooter where Dan Green will be having a chat with one of the players as soon after the hooter as they can get there.
Shooters Bar will be backing the Panthers' powerplay this season. Adult season ticket holders can get a meal deal special from MacDonalds in Nottingham all week long (after 10.30am).
Match and season tickets can be used on the Nottingham trams network to get to the game for £2 return.
We welcome AJKM Hockey Barn to the game tomorrow as our match sponsor for the night!
