Lehigh Valley Continues Points Streak During First Road Trip

October 29, 2019

Phantoms In The Community:

Lehigh Valley Phantoms players took some time to visit their four-legged friends over at the Lehigh County Humane Society. Phantoms players spent time with the dogs available for adoption and took them for walks and gave them plenty of belly rubs. The players also posed for pictures with the animals for a special calendar that will be a giveaway for the first 6,500 fans on December 28, 2019 against the Utica Comets.
