2019 Flyers Alumni vs. Snider Hockey Alumni Showdown

The Flyers Alumni will take to the ice as part of the 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium SeriesTM weekend of events in a celebratory game with alumni from the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation (Snider Hockey). The game, billed as the Alumni Showdown, will take place on Friday, February 22 at 7 p.m. at the Class of '23 Arena on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania.

Prior to puck drop, plans will be unveiled to renovate the facility. When construction is completed, the ice rink will be named the Ed Snider/ Flyers Alumni Ice Rink at the Class of '23 Arena. This project is largely possible by the Flyers Alumni acting on a $2 million pledge to support Snider Hockey. The NHL and Penn have also joined the Flyers Alumni and Snider Hockey in support of this effort, which will allow Snider Hockey to expand and bring its daily youth enrichment programs to a new audience.

"The Flyers Alumni are very excited about this project at the Class of '23 Arena," said Flyers Alumni President, Brad Marsh. "Mr. Snider had a lasting impact on our lives, as well as the entire hockey community in Philadelphia. This pledge was made as a way to honor Mr. Snider's legacy and continue to grow the sport of hockey."

"The Flyers Alumni have supported Snider Hockey since our inception," said Snider Hockey President, Scott Tharp. "This is a great example of what can be done when organizations come together in support of their community. Mr. Snider would be proud."

The Flyers Alumni will field a roster of 35 players including former Flyers forward Scott Hartnell in his first alumni game, Danny Briere, Nick Schultz, Brian Boucher, Brad Marsh, Joe Watson and many more. Rosters for both teams will be released in the coming weeks.
