Phantoms In The Community:
Alex Lyon was named the Lehigh Valley Phantoms IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year for his outstanding contributions to the Lehigh Valley community. Taking part in school visits, holiday shopping, Pride Night, the blood drive, sled hockey practice and more, Alex continually takes time out of his day to give back to the community that has treated him so well over the past three seasons.
“The Lehigh Valley takes such good care of us as players,” Lyon said. “It’s hard for us to acknowledge that and reciprocate that back, so for us to be able to do that is a really great feeling.”
