ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The Lehigh Valley Phantoms, proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, are excited to announce the team's home opener for their highly-anticipated fourth season at PPL Center is set for Saturday, October 7, 2017.  That means another thrilling regular season of Phantoms hockey action in the Lehigh Valley is just 121 days away!

"Home Opener is always a special night," said Phantoms Executive Vice President Chris Porreca.  "And preparations are already underway to ensure this year's home opener is another memorable evening for our fans. Phan Nation has helped produce standing room-only sellouts in each of our first three home openers at PPL Center and we're looking forward to another packed house to kick off the 2017-18 season."

What's more, the Phantoms are excited to announce five additional home dates for the upcoming 2017-18 season, including:

Saturday, November 25, 2017
Saturday, December 2, 2017
Saturday, December 30, 2017
Saturday, January 13, 2018
Saturday, February 10, 2018

"The announcement of these six dates provides a tremendous opportunity for groups to begin scheduling their Phantoms games early," Porreca said.  "We're thrilled to be able to share these dates with our fans and look forward to enthusiastic and passionate crowds at each of these contests."
