ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The PPL Center in Allentown will be home to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms ice hockey team and a number of concerts when it opens in just a few weeks, but someone is already calling it his "home sweet home."

His name is meLVin, and it seems he was destined to be a part of the team.

We were pleased to welcome MeLVin to our studio Thursday along with Phantoms co-owner Jim Brooks and vice president Chris Porreca.
