Flyers Will Play Devils in What Promises to Be Fun Home Opener to 2019-20 Season

The Flyers' 2019-20 home opener should be a fun one.

Not only will the Flyers have a different look - from the coaching staff to the roster - but they'll also welcome a division rival with a new feature, as well.

The Flyers will host the Devils on Oct. 9 in their first game at the Wells Fargo Center. This comes after the Flyers play their season opener in Prague, Czech Republic, on Oct. 4 against the Blackhawks as part of the NHL Global Series.

The Devils hold the No. 1 overall pick in this weekend's 2019 NHL entry draft. Jack Hughes is the consensus top selection and has a strong chance to make New Jersey's roster.

The Flyers' full schedule will come out next Tuesday. The club announced its preseason schedule this week (see story).

Here's a look at home openers across the NHL:
