The Philadelphia Phantoms played at the Spectrum for 13 seasons from 1996-2009 winning two Calder Cups in 1998 and 2005. But the Philadelphia Phantoms did play some games in Wells Fargo Center during that era as well.

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite group of just 9 other active markets who can make such a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an old-school feel that began with the Adirondack Red Wings in 1979. In their 20-year tenure at the Glens Falls Civic Center through 1999, the Red Wings won four Calder Cups. The Adirondack Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-10 and are in their fifth season bringing exciting AHL action to the North Country.
