The Flyers have the best prospect group in the NHL, which means that the annual rookie camp that takes place just prior to the full NHL training camp this fall will be particularly lit.
And as has been the case in eight of the last 10 years, rookie camp will close this fall with a real game against rookies from another NHL squad. This year, it’ll be the Flyers hosting the New York Islanders’ rookies on Wed., Sept. 13 at the Wells Fargo Center.
Tickets and parking will both be free, but you must reserve a ticket via the Flyers website beginning at 3 p.m. today, August 22.
It’ll be a rematch of the game from a year ago, when the Flyers defeated the Islanders rookies, 4-0, in a game at the Isles’ practice facility on Long Island. The Flyers last hosted a rookie game in 2014, when they defeated the Washington Capitals rookies in Voorhees by a score of 3-0. The game has been held at the Wells Fargo Center just once, back in 2011.
No word just yet on if the game will be streamed, but since it’s in Philadelphia we’d imagine that the Flyers’ website will show it at the very least.
For a sense of what the roster might look like, here’s a peek at the Flyers lineup from last year’s game.
