“We are truly excited to host the 2014 National Hockey League Entry Draft at the Wells Fargo Center,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko. “This is further testament that Philadelphia truly is a hockey town. We just hosted a wonderful Winter Classic last season and, in addition to hosting the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, we soon will be preparing to also host the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four at Wells Fargo Center. What a thrill for not just hockey fans in our region, but for the entire City of Philadelphia. We would like to thank the NHL for selecting Philadelphia as the host city for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.”
Many prospects from many different countries will be on hand. This will be the first time the NHL Draft is coming to Philadelphia.
