  • 00:48 •

The National Hockey League (NHL®), NHL Network™ and the Philadelphia Flyers® today announced their partnership for the second season of the groundbreaking all-access series Behind The Glass: Philadelphia Flyers Training Camp. Produced by NHL Network in association with NHL Original Productions, the four-part series will offer fans a glimpse into the fast-paced nature of an NHL training camp. Within less than four weeks, Flyers players will report to camp, undergo endurance and skill tests, play in preseason and exhibition games in the U.S. and Europe, compete for roster spots, and ultimately prepare for the team's season opener on October 4. Behind The Glass: Philadelphia Flyers Training Camp is set to premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET on NHL Network.

 

Premiere Dates

Wed., Sept. 25, Episode 1, 8:00 p.m. ET

Mon., Sept. 30, Episode 2, 8:00 p.m. ET

Mon., Oct. 7, Episode 3, 10:00 p.m. ET

Mon., Oct. 14, Episode 4, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Throughout the series, Behind The Glass will shadow Flyers president of hockey operations & general manager Chuck Fletcher and new head coach Alain Vigneault for behind-the-scenes insight into their evaluations on the more than 50 players competing for 23 roster spots. Behind The Glass will also spend a training session as part of a 'day in the life' with defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who calls Philadelphia his home during the offseason. The show will also profile newly acquired forward Kevin Hayes as he begins his first season with the Flyers and feature 21-year old goalie Carter Hart, following his dynamic rookie season and his first training camp as the team's number-one goaltender. NHL Network's cameras will travel with the Flyers to the Czech Republic, following winger and Czech native Jakub Voracek as he prepares for the team's season-opening game in his home country against the Chicago Blackhawks on October 4 as part of the 2019 NHL Global Series™.

The first season of Behind The Glass in 2018 offered fans an unprecedented look inside the NHL preseason through the lens of the New Jersey Devils, who came into the 2018-19 NHL regular season following the team's first Stanley Cup Playoff appearance in six years. Over the four-week series, cameras closely followed Devils GM Ray Shero and head coach John Hynes, as well as newcomers and veteran players through grueling team workouts, international travel, and final roster decisions.

"Last year, Behind The Glass introduced fans to an aspect of the NHL world that they had never seen," said NHL Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President Steve Mayer. "We couldn't believe the response from our fans as they got a glimpse into a team's training camp for the first time. We are thrilled to partner with the Philadelphia Flyers and their organization as they get ready to embark on a new season."

"We are thrilled to be working with the NHL and NHL Network to showcase a different, all-access side of the Flyers organization," said Valerie Camillo, president of business operations for Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. "This is an incredible opportunity to give our fans and the hockey community a never-before-seen look at our club and to spotlight the promising young talent we are developing that will bring the Flyers to the next level."

Exclusive bonus content and clips from each episode of Behind The Glass will be shared by the NHL, NHL Network and the Flyers across their digital and social media platforms using #BehindTheGlass. In addition to its schedule on NHL Network, each episode of Behind The Glass will also re-air on Sportsnet as well as the NHL's platforms on YouTube, Facebook and IGTV.
