by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers

In honor of the 50th anniversaries of the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins, alumni legends from both clubs will renew their rivalry in a special, cross-state contest on January 14, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center.

 

Flyers season ticket members will enjoy an exclusive alumni game ticket pre-sale - and the opportunity to reserve their own seats - beginning tomorrow, September 8 at 11 a.m. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 16 at 11 a.m. at PhiladelphiaFlyers.com.

 

This official alumni game will feature representation from every era of Flyers Hockey and will stand as the largest gathering of alumni since the 2012 Winter Classic outdoor game at Citizens Bank Park. Flyers fans will get to see the return of some of the most popular players in franchise history, as well as the debut of first-time alumni players.

 

"This game is a celebration of the past 50 years of Flyers Hockey," said Brad Marsh, president of the Flyers Alumni Association. "To bring five decades' worth of players and fans together to share in the one thing we all have in common - fiercely representing the orange and black - that's not something that happens every day."
