The Panthers hosted students from the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind & Visually Impaired

SUNRISE - The Florida Panthers gave the experience of a lifetime to South Florida students.

The team welcomed students from the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind & Visually impaired on Tuesday.

The students had the chance to experience hockey using a puck that made noise.

The students also had the chance to touch all of the equipment used by NHL players.

The hockey tour was narrated by the Panthers radio play-by-play announcer Doug Plagans.

Miami Lighthouse's Transition Program helps students between the ages of 14-22 develop skills to enter the work force.
