With training camp weeks away and the Flyers officially kicking off their 50th Anniversary year next month, PhiladelphiaFlyers.com takes a look at the five games you definitely want to catch at the Wells Fargo Center, beginning with a very special home opening contest…
Thursday, Oct. 20: vs. Anaheim Ducks
7:00 p.m. ET on Comcast SportsNet; 97.5 The Fanatic
After getting a taste of three games to open the season on the road, opening night in Philadelphia finally arrives. This year’s team will take to the ice for the 20th straight season at the Wells Fargo Center in its 50 years of existence.
Fans in attendance for the evening will be treated to an exclusive 50 Years of Flyers Hockey retrospective presentation, full team introductions, a special tribute to the late Ed Snider prior to puck drop and their first look at the special 50th Anniversary sweaters the team will wear.
The Ducks leadership group features one of the most potent offense trio in the league with Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler and Corey Perry, while Flyers fans will see their favorites take the ice for the first time on home ice as well as some of the newest faces on this year’s roster – of course those names are TBD until training camp is complete.
