Phantoms tour new arena

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The hockey team that's ready to move into downtown Allentown's arena next fall got a chance to look over the new facility on Wednesday.

The Channel 69 cameras were there as members of the Phantoms put on hard hats and toured the construction site at the arena.

Right now, the team is playing in Glens Falls, New York, but, next season, it'll call the Lehigh Valley home.

The players say they can't wait.

"To see a place like this and hear the numbers that are getting put in and all of the amenities. It's kind of exciting," said Phantoms defenseman Cullen Eddy.

"This is a workplace for us. To have start-of-the art equipment and things like that, it's always a good feeling to get the best of everything," he added.

The Phantoms planned a practice at the Steel Ice Center in Bethlehem Thursday morning.
