Betsy Ross House offers history lesson for prospects

PHILADELPHIA -- The top prospects for the 2014 NHL Draft made a stop at the Betsy Ross House in the historic section of the city.

They posed for pictures with Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin and toured the colonial-era home.

While only one of the players on the tour is American, all six enjoyed the brief tour of the home and history lesson.

"There's an appreciation there," Canadian-born defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts said. "It was a good time."
