New head coach Alain Vigneault has won everywhere he’s been, and Flyers fans are hoping that trend continues in the City of Brotherly Love. The success for this season may depend on goaltending. After rotating through eight men at the position last year, prospect Carter Hart will get his chance, along with Brian Elliott in a reserve role.
Kevin Hayes (via free agency) and Matt Niskanen (via trade with Washington) were the big offseason acquisitions, while Oskar Lindblom will look to capitalize on his strong end-of-season run a year ago (13 goals in the last 36 games).
The Wells Fargo Center, home of the Flyers since 1996, just finished the fourth of a five-year, $265 million renovation. A 4K Kinetic scoreboard above the rink is the largest addition. The board has pieces that can move, along with the ability to feature pyrotechnic and smoke effects.
The Center City Club is also new for 2019-20. It’s an exclusive area for center-ice and other premium ticket holders. The 7,400-square foot area features a show kitchen and two 50-foot bars. This is all in addition to the nearly 100 traditional luxury suites (that hold 12, 24, or 50 people) in the venue, giving you plenty of options for a first-class experience at Flyers games this season.
