The Philadelphia Flyers unveiled today the team’s 2015-16 promotional schedule, featuring a special retirement night, giveaways, fan favorites, and more.
In addition to the previously announced Flyers Hall of Fame inductions of Rod Brind’Amour, which will take place prior to the November 23 game vs. the Carolina Hurricanes, and Jimmy Watson, scheduled for the February 29 matchup against the Calgary Flames, the Flyers will commemorate the retirement of former Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen during a pre-game ceremony before the Flyers vs. Chicago Blackhawks game on October 14.
Giveaways for all fans during the 2015-16 season include Toyota schedule magnets on KIA Opening Night, October 12 vs. the Florida Panthers and a team poster giveaway on Fan Appreciation Night, March 30 vs. the Washington Capitals. Commemorative giveaways for each of the Flyers Hall of Fame nights will be announced closer to the start of the season.
Staples of the Flyers promotional calendar include two Dietz and Watson Dollar Dog Nights (October 29 vs. the New Jersey Devils and March 28 vs. the Winnipeg Jets), two SUPERPRETZEL Dollar Pretzel Nights (December 8 vs. the New York Islanders and February 2 vs. the Montreal Canadiens), and Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Day on February 27 vs. the Arizona Coyotes.
The Flyers will continue the tradition of honoring worthy causes and community organizations with several awareness nights during the 2015-16 season, highlighted by the club’s first-ever Make-a-Wish Night on January 13 vs. the Boston Bruins, Hockey Fights Cancer Night on October 24 vs. the New York Rangers, Military Appreciation Night on November 10 vs. the Colorado Avalanche, Snider Hockey Night on March 3 vs. the Edmonton Oilers, and Autism Awareness Day on April 2 vs. the Ottawa Senators.
