The 2012–13 Florida Panthers season was the 20th season for the National Hockey League (NHL) franchise that was established on June 14, 1993. The season was partially cancelled due to a labor dispute, which ended on January 6, 2013. The campaign for the Panthers then commenced as a shortened, 48-game season beginning on January 19. The shortened season will feature only intra-conference games.
The Panthers were eliminated from Stanley Cup playoff contention, failing to make the post-season for the 11th time in their past 12 seasons. Florida earned the least points of any NHL team in 2012–13, finishing with a 15–27–6 record for last in both the Eastern Conference and 30-team NHL.

A pre-season schedule was planned for late September and early October, but the lockout forced its cancellation. No pre-season will be held for the truncated, 48-game campaign beginning January 19.
As of Thursday, October 4, the NHL has cancelled all games scheduled through Wednesday, October 24, causing the Panthers to lose their first five games of the season, with more cancelled games possible without a resolution to the dispute soon. As of Friday, October 19, the Panthers have lost three additional games through November 1 due to the lockout. All November games were lost one week later on Friday, October 26, eliminating any possibility of a rearranged 82-game season and assuring that any season that does take place will be shortened. On November 23, two more weeks of hockey and six additional Panthers games were put on the chopping block, with all matchups through December 14 being cancelled. On December 11, after a week of negotiations broke off, all games through December 30 were axed. On December 20, 2012, following a further lack of negotiations during the lockout, all games through January 14 were cancelled.
On January 6, 2013, the lockout ended after a 16-hour negotiation session in an effort to salvage the season. A condensed season, of a length of 48 intra-conference games, will now be played.
The Panthers scored 109 goals (excluding three shootout-winning goals) over the lockout-shortened season of 48 games, tied for 29th overall with the Nashville Predators. They also allowed 170 goals (excluding one shootout goal), the most in the League, allowed the most power-play goals, with 39, and had the lowest penalty-kill percentage, at 74.17%.
