This time, its not going to be the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Ottawa Senators, but the Detroit Red Wings.

The Flyers' annual preseason visit north of the border to London, Ont., will see them face the Red Wings at John Labatt Centre on Sept. 22.

London truly is our home away from home," said Comcast-Spectacor President and Global Spectrum chairman Peter Luukko. The fan support here in London for the Flyers is outstanding. The John Labatt Centre is a fantastic hockey arena that our players enjoy visiting.

To be playing the Detroit Red Wings here in London is a dream match-up for hockey fans in Southwestern Ontario and Eastern Michigan. Its going to be a terrific night of hockey in the City of London.

This will be the first time in eight visits to the John Labatt Centre that the Flyers will play the Red Wings.
