LIBERTY BELL GAMES RECAP

VOORHEES, N.J. - The 5th annual Liberty Bell Games took place last weekend at the Flyers Skate Zone here and was an overwhelming success.

More than 90 of the areas top high-school age hockey talent, selected from a pool of 216 applicants, played for five different teams during the weekend in front of nearly 60 professional, collegiate, junior, prep school and independent scouts.

During some down time on Saturday, the participating players were given tours of the practice facility by Flyers Ambassador of Hockey Todd Fedoruk and sat through a compelling presentation on training, developing players and prospects from Flyers Director of Player Development Ian Laperriere.

Kicking off the event, the Liberty Bell Games provided certificates of appreciation to their corporate partners from Wendy’s and Comcast-Spectacor and presented Flyers president and COO of Comcast-Spectacor Peter Luukko with a certificate of appreciation.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was also on hand for the start of the event.

“The event certainly could not happen without our Sponsors Comcast-Spectacor and Wendy's, as well as our staff,” said Liberty Bell Games and President and CEO Lew Mongelluzzo, who is also a scout for the Ottawa Senators. “Equally important are the 90 players that committed their time and demonstrated their skill level in front of a national audience.

“The Atlantic District continues to play a prominent role in producing and developing players to compete throughout the country at high levels.”

The Liberty Bell Games has had 33 players in it’s first four seasons go on to play Division I NCAA hockey or CHL Junior Hockey.

Three players have been drafted by NHL teams – John Gaudreau was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 draft by Calgary, Troy Vance was selected in the fifth round of that draft by Dallas, and the Flyers took goalie Anthony Stolarz in the second round of 2012.

Next year’s Liberty Bell Games will take place June 6-8, 2014 at the Skate Zone. Applications can be submitted beginning in January.

In the meantime, the inaugural Philadelphia Amateur Hockey Combine, scheduled for July 30-August 1 at the Skate Zone, will bring together more than 100 of the top amateur hockey players, ages 13-19, from coast-to-coast.

This unmatched combination of on-and-off-ice testing, practices, and full 60-minute games will provide professional and college scouts in attendance with a comprehensive look at each player.

Daily instruction and lectures will be led by NHL alumni and coaches, including Todd Fedoruk, Derian Hatcher, Ian Laperriere, Jeremy Roenick, Robert Esche, and more.
