Flyers Trying to Bring All-Star Game, Draft to Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Flyers would like to bring the National Hockey League All-Star Game and Entry Draft to the City of Brotherly Love.
 
Several members of the Flyers' front office, along with special guests Rocky Balboa and Benjamin Franklin, personally delivered the team's proposal to the League offices on Monday, February 8.

“We are excited about the possibilities of potentially hosting the NHL Entry Draft and the NHL All-Star Game,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “While it’s still early in the process, we’ve expressed our interest to the League by submitting a proposal today. We know this would be great for our fans and great for the City of Philadelphia.”
 
The Flyers submitted an interest to the League to host the NHL Entry Draft and the NHL All-Star Game in either 2012 or 2013.
 
The League has yet to announce where the 2011 All-Star Game will be played. There is no game this year, due to the League suspending play for the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
 
The NHL All-Star Game has been played in Philadelphia twice, both at the Spectrum. In 1976, the Wales Conference defeated the Campbell Conference, 7-5; and in 1992, the Campbell Conference won the game, 10-6.
 
Philadelphia has never hosted the NHL Entry Draft.
