Get ’em while they’re hot!
The Philadelphia Flyers teased an 11 a.m. announcement on twitter this morning, and it turned out to be a bit underwhelming. It was almost expected though, as any big announcement either wouldn’t be teased or would be leaked prior.
A few weeks ago the Flyers announced that they would be hosting the New York Islanders in a Rookie Game at the Wells Fargo Center. Admission is free, and all the allotted tickets were gone within less than four hours.
Now the Flyers have released more tickets for next week’s game. The game will be the first time top prospect Nolan Patrick plays in a Flyers jersey and it’ll give you a chance to see all the Flyers of tomorrow on the Wells Fargo Center ice.
Current stars like Claude Giroux and Shayne Gostisbehere have participated in past rookie games, as well as budding prospects Travis Sanheim and Sam Morin. Just last year both Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny played in the 4-0 win.
The roster for rookie camp looks very similar to the development camp roster, with a few additions and losses. The full roster can be seen here.
Many of the prospects in the Flyers prospect pyramid are on the roster for the game. This includes Nolan Patrick, Oskar Lindblom, Travis Sanheim, Philippe Myers, Samuel Morin, German Rubtsov, Morgan Frost, Isaac Ratcliffe, and many more.
The rookie game is just one of the important dates coming up on the Flyers schedule. Hockey season is here.
