Briere, LeClair, Hatcher and Primeau Return to the Ice

Briere, LeClair, Hatcher and Primeau Return to the Ice

There's no mistaking their names. Briere, LeClair, Hatcher and Primeau. It's a who's who of recent Flyers history. It's not widely known, but we've learned they've been working out, and will be back on the ice together.
It's a dream come true for all of them - and it's going to make you feel incredibly old.
Danny Briere, John LeClair, Derian Hatcher and Keith Primeau all have sons who who play on the same Pee Wee hockey team in South Jersey. They are headed to the Quebec International Pee Wee Hockey Tournament as part of a local Flyers-sponsored team.
CSN Philly's Lisa Hillary takes a look at the players and their famous fathers - and in the case of Peter White, Jr., his famous grandfather (that'd be Bobby Clarke). 
 
A) How cool is is that Hatcher, Primeau, and LeClair all have ties if not houses in the area? B) How ridiculously old do you feel seeing their sons being interviewed? C) How about the fact that John LeClair's son is named Jagger aka Jagger Vermont? Bad ass, right? D) Sean Couturier is closer in age to Carson Briere, with whom he shares a house, than he is his landlord and teammate Danny Briere. 
Best of luck to the boys as they head to Quebec for the tournament. Hopefully Lou Nolan's grandson is doing the PA.

TicketIQ: Penn State to face USC in most expensive Rose Bowl this decade

Editor's Note: The following is sponsored content written by TicketIQ.

Penn State is headed to the Rose Bowl Game, and it will cost a pretty penny to be on hand in Pasadena on January 2.

With a statement win over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game Penn State clinched their first Rose Bowl berth since 2009. The No. 5 school in the nation will face No. 9 USC in a rematch from seven years ago. Such a long absence for both schools in the bowl game is driving resale ticket prices to new heights, so much so that the Rose Bowl Game will be the most expensive bowl game this season – including the two Semifinal games.

On TicketIQ, an event ticket search engine that pools tickets and data from over 90 percent of the secondary market, the average resale price for Rose Bowl Game tickets is now $804. Not only does that make it the most expensive Rose Bowl since at least 2010, but also the priciest bowl game of the last seven seasons. If looking just to get in on January 2 the cheapest tickets are now priced from $346 each.

The showdown between Penn State and USC is so expensive that it will be more than twice the average price of both Semifinal games. As it stands now the resale average for Peach Bowl tickets between Alabama and Washington at Georgia Dome is $389 with a get-in price of $185. Clemson and Ohio State will clash in the Fiesta Bowl to the tune of a $241 average and $71 get-in price.

Prices are so high for this year’s game in Pasadena that they rival the 2015 National Championship Game. The first-ever Championship Game under the new College Football Playoff system, that year’s game between Ohio State and Oregon averaged a $858 ticket and $317 get-in price.

While Penn State fans, students and alumni raced to snag tickets during the general on sale, prices were quick to skyrocket on the secondary market following the school’s invitation to the Rose Bowl Game. On Saturday afternoon, several hours before the Big Ten Championship kickoff, Rose Bowl tickets were averaging under $600, marking a nearly 40 percent increase since that time. The cheapest resale ticket price has jumped more than $100 since Saturday, climbing from its $245 price tag since.
