Phantoms Set For 5-Game Road Trip

March 26, 2019

Phantoms In The Community:

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms hosted their 5th annual Bleed Orange Blood Drive last week, in conjunction with the Miller Keystone Blood Center.  Overall, 94 units of blood were collected during the event which is enough to save 282 lives! Even Phantoms defenseman, T.J. Brennan volunteered to donate blood to help save somebody in need.

March 19 marked the final practice of the season for the Phantoms Charities Sled Hockey team. Phantoms players Colin McDonald, T.J. Brennan, Philip Samuelsson, Connor Bunnaman, Alex Lyon, and Reece Willcox surprised the children on the ice and joined them for practice. Each athlete was also given a stick signed by all of the Lehigh Valley players. Alex Lyon called it the most incredible and rewarding thing he has ever been a part of.
