Heads up, hockey fans. National Hockey League action hits Philadelphia this weekend.
The 2014 NHL Draft arrives at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center this Friday, June 27 and Saturday, June 28, bringing two days of awesome off-season hockey excitement to the City of Brotherly Love.
From NHL team executives, scouts and coaches from all 30 clubs to draft picks and players, a veritable who’s who of the National Hockey League will be here in Philly to take part in the 2014 NHL Draft.
Plus, thousands of fans will also be in attendance both inside the stadium and at the on-site NHL Draft Fan Fest. Tickets to the draft are sold out, but that doesn’t mean fans can’t get in on the NHL buzz.
NHL Draft Fan Fest
The Philadelphia Flyers, Xfinity Live! Philadelphia and the NHL are teaming up to host a free Fan Fest during both days of the draft, June 27-28, to host fans at Xfinity Live!, the dining and entertainment venue right next to the stadium.
From 3 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 27 and 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 28, Xfinity Live! invites fans out to check out hockey-themed and family-friendly activities, live DJs, face painting, food and beverages and exclusive draft merch.
Fans can get hands on with hockey activities, including a full-size street hockey rink for pick-up play and skill challenges, and family-friendly good times like an obstacle course, bungee run, bounce house, giant slide and a large arcade. The Academy of Natural Sciences, The Franklin Institute and the Please Touch Museum will be on-hand, too, with interactive activity stations.
It’s a great option for super fans who didn’t score seats inside the stadium, and admission is totally free, no ticket required.
Tickets for the NHL draft are no longer available, but those interested in signing up for a waiting list to be notified of late ticket release notifications, check right here.
