The Malvern Prep Varsity Ice Hockey Team will face off against La Salle College High School at Citizens Bank Park in January as part of the NHL's Annual Winter Classic festivities.
The Malvern-La Salle game will take place on Wednesday, January 4, at 5:00 p.m. at the ballpark, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies. The game, being dubbed the first annual High School Holiday Classic, will be followed by a college contest between Neumann University and Penn State. The Malvern-La Salle game will be a rematch of last season's Flyers Cup Championship in which La Salle defeated Malvern 3-2 in sudden death overtime at the Wells Fargo Center.
Tickets to the Malvern-LaSalle game will be $10 in advance and $15 at the game. Details will go on sale on the Malvern website in December.
The Philadelphia Flyers will face the New York Rangers on Monday, January 2 at 1 p.m. in the NHL's fifth annual outdoor game. In addition to the professional game, the Adirondack Phantoms and Hershey Bears of the AHL will face off on January 6.
