The Philadelphia Flyers will host the New Jersey Devils in a preseason game at PPL Center in Allentown, the home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
The game is set for Wednesday, September 28 at 7:05 p.m. and marks the second consecutive preseason in which the Flyers will host a game at the home of their American Hockey League affiliate.
“We are very excited to have the Flyers playing again in Allentown,” said Flyers president Paul Holmgren. “We are absolutely thrilled with our affiliation and look forward to bigger and better things in the future. Our fans in the Lehigh Valley are great and this game will give them the opportunity to see not only current Flyers but future Flyers as well.”
“This game is a true celebration of the Flyers/Phantoms affiliation and the organization’s collective commitment to growing the sport of hockey in the Lehigh Valley,” said Phantoms co-owner/governor Rob Brooks.
"It was a thrill to watch world-class players like Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek on PPL Center ice and we look forward to another exciting night of NHL hockey in the Valley," added Phantoms co-owner/governor Jim Brooks.
On September 21, 2015, the Flyers took a 5-3 win over the New York Islanders at PPL Center to start out the 2015 preseason. It marked the first NHL game ever to be played in the Lehigh Valley.
