Former Flyer and current coach of the Adirondack Phantoms Riley Cote visited the Steel Ice Center on May 1st to promote his High Performance Hockey Camp and to observe a night of evaluations for the Lehigh Valley Flames youth hockey teams. According to the Morning Call (see linked article, below) Cote remarked, ”The Phantoms will be here next year playing in a brand new building and we can’t wait. We’re trying to establish a relationship with youth hockey here in the Lehigh Valley and getting a foot in the door helping to develop it.”
Flames President Sandy Steidel was also quoted in the Morning Call article: ”With the Phantoms coming, we are taking advantage of Riley’s camps and the opportunity to have a professional coach of Riley’s caliber promoting hockey.”

Seven year old Sammie Zupko, of Easton, was named Honorary Captain of the Flames Midget 16AA White team for their Sunday game vs the Exton Kings.

The Flames went on to defeat the Kings, 6-2. Thank you to Sammie for your inspirational appearance at the game! Please visit the PCFLV website to see how you can help support their mission.

One of the most important things people can do during the holiday season is to give back … to support those who have not been as lucky or fortunate as most of us. On Friday, December 28th, members of the Flames Midget 16AA White and Midget 18A teams took the opportunity to do just that — by volunteering their time to help the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley. Here are photos and video from that day. For the full story, click here.

Thank you to the Tanczos Family for hosting, and for everyone’s food and drink contribution. Great Day!
This is Squirt B goaltender Luke Shingle’s freshly painted goalie mask. The theme is “Ready to play, day and night, home and away.” It sports the Flames logo prominently, with his nickname, “Rhino,” represented on the chin and sides. Steel Stacks is shown in the background. The head plate features the Flames name, as well as Luke’s, and the “DGD” stands for his goalie coach, Terry Denike. The mask was painted by artist Doug Wager (Twitter: @wzlhed). Awesome!
