The Florida Panthers are honoring the life of former Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez before the team's game on Thursday night by auctioning off warmup jerseys with his name and No. 16 on the back.

Several members from the Marlins including Dee Gordon, Derek Dietrich, Tom Koehler, and J.T. Realmuto are in attendance as the Panthers pay tribute to Fernandez. Additionally, the jersey's will be worn by Panthers players during their warm up skate - specifically Keith Yandle, Derek MacKenzie and Vincent Trochek.

Fernandez lost his life in a boating accident on Sept. 25 in Miami. Shortly after, the league retired his No. 16 and several major-league players finished the season by honoring Fernandez with #JDF16 on their ball caps and jerseys.
