For a fourth season in a row, the Flyers and the New York Islanders young guns will face off in the Rookie Game with this year’s matchup taking place at the PPL Center (the home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms). Philly won last year’s meeting 6-3 and have won two of the previous three Rookie Games against the Isles.
Following the Rookie Game the actual Flyers and Islanders will face off back-to-back nights in Philadelphia on the 16th and then on Long Island the 17th. The Orange and Black then return home to host both the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers before visiting both squads in an eight-day span. As previously announced Philly closes their preseason with a game against HC Lausanne, who is a member of Switzerland’s NLA (the nation’s top league).
