Flyers to Host Devils in Preseason Game at PPL Center

The Flyers are headed back to Allentown.

For the second straight season, the Flyers will play a preseason game at PPL Center, the home of their AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley Phantoms, hosting the Devils on Sept. 28.

"We are very excited to have the Flyers playing again in Allentown," Flyers president Paul Holmgren said in a statement. "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."

Last season, the Flyers faced off against the New York Islanders on Sept. 21, a game they won, 5-4. It was the first NHL game played at PPL Center and also the Flyers' first preseason game of the season.

"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," Phantoms co-owner/governor Jim Brooks said.

The full 2016-17 schedule has not yet been announced.
