During an open to the public press conference at the PPL Center this afternoon, the Flyers announced they will start their exhibition slate in Allentown.
The Flyers will faceoff against the Islanders Monday, September 21st.
The first hockey game played in the PPL Center was the Battle of Hamilton last year, a mixed squad game made up of Phantoms and Flyers players.
Paul Holmgren: “We wanted to get a game in here last year and couldn’t get it logistically worked out.”
This year, the first contest will be an NHL preseason game.
If you’re keeping count, that’s 104 days till Flyers hockey.
