TEAM SECURES HOME-ICE IN PLAYOFFS OF THE INAUGURAL SEASON OF THE UNITED STATES PREMIER HOCKEY LEAGUE

The Philadelphia Flyers Junior Hockey Team has secured home ice advantage for the first round of the U.S. Premier Hockey League (USPHL) playoffs and will open a best-of-three post-season series against the Islanders Hockey Club at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, on Friday, February 28 at 7 p.m.

Fans are invited to watch National Hockey League draft eligible prospects as they compete for the first league title in USPHL history.

The first 350 fans in attendance will receive Flyers rally towels. Fans can purchase tickets from the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone box office and online at USPHLFlyers.com for just $5.

The Flyers held a 5-1 record against the Islanders this season that has fueled a regional rivalry between the teams. The second guaranteed game in this series will be played on Saturday, March 1 at 5 p.m. at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone.
