If you win the Powerball jackpot and have a few hundred million to spare, you may consider buying the Florida Panthers — one of the least valuable teams in the National Hockey League, according to an analysis from Sportico.
Why it matters: NHL franchises have surged in value over the last decade, as investors see buying a hockey team as a good value compared with other pro sports franchises.
The average NHL franchise is worth 9% more than it was last year. (Even the Panthers saw its value jump 14%.)
The big picture: The Panthers, who played in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1996 but have made the playoffs only eight times after that, have had recent success.
