The Philadelphia Flyers will play host to the New Jersey Devils in a preseason game at PPL Center in Allentown, which is the home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, their AHL Affiliate.
The Flyers and the Devils will square off on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at 7:05 p.m. This is the second consecutive preseason that the Flyers will play a game at the PPL Center, which will be hosting its third year of professional hockey.
The first NHL game was played at PPL Center last preseason when the Flyers hosted the New York Islanders. The game took place on September 21, 2015 and the Flyers won the game 5-3. It was a split squad game for both teams with half of the players going to Brooklyn to play at the Barclays Center. The Flyers sent some of the regular players like Claude Giroux, Michael Raffl and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare along with prospects like Travis Konecny to Allentown. The preseason game gave the fans a chance to see some current Flyers and prospects that they may not follow or see in person.
The tickets for the game will go on sale beginning on Tuesday, May 17, to Lehigh Valley Phantoms season ticket holders in an exclusive presale. The Phantoms will also be offering a discount to season ticket holders should they decide to buy the tickets and go to this game. On Thursday, May 19, at 10 a.m. the general public will be able to purchase tickets for the game. They will be able to get them online at pplcenter.com, by calling (610)-347-TIXX or go to the Box Office at PPL Center.
The PPL Center will also be the sight of the 2017 AHL All-Star Classic, which will be happening from January 28, 2017-January 30, 2017.
