London, Ontario, Canada that is. The Flyers will be making their annual trip to play a preseason game in the Great White North this September, and for the first time their opponent will be the Detroit Red Wings.
“London truly is our home away from home,” said Comcast-Spectacor President and Global Spectrum chairman Peter Luukko, via csnphilly.com. “The fan support here in London for the Flyers is outstanding. The John Labatt Centre is a fantastic hockey arena that our players enjoy visiting.
“To be playing the Detroit Red Wings here in London is a dream match-up for hockey fans in Southwestern Ontario and Eastern Michigan. It’s going to be a terrific night of hockey in the City of London.”
The game is scheduled for September 22 and will be the eighth time the Flyers have made the trip to the John Labatt Center.
