Lehigh Valley Ends Week with Thrilling Win

March 19, 2019

Phantoms In The Community:

On Saturday, the Phantoms hosted their third Very Important Phantom of the season, welcoming Cullen, a 9-year-old boy diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to PPL Center. Prior to his diagnosis, Cullen played ice hockey and loved it. He is a huge Flyers and Phantoms fan. He was given a tour of the Phantoms locker room before enjoying the game. He is currently undergoing treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

On Tuesday, Connor Bunnaman, Reece Willcox, and Mark Friedman took part in the Phantoms Fit program at Broughal Middle School in Bethlehem. They taught the kids some different hockey skills, including passing and shoot drills, and the school received brand new floor hockey equipment to use courtesy of Phantoms Charities.
