The Trenton Titans announced that they have reached an affiliation agreement with the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers.
“We are pleased to have The Trenton Titans as our ECHL affiliate and look forward to working closely with them on developing future Flyers in a winning environment,” Paul Holmgren, Philadelphia Flyers GM said.
This will be the second consecutive year that the Titans will serve as the Flyers’ ECHL affiliate. Under the agreement, players contracted to either the Flyers or the Adirondack Phantoms can be assigned to Trenton, while players contracted to Trenton can be called up by Adirondack. A total of seven players appeared in games for both Adirondack and Trenton last season, including Trenton’s top two scorers, Andy Bohmbach and Rob Bordson.
“We are thrilled to be back with the Flyers as their ECHL affiliate,” said Trenton President/CEO Rich Lisk. “Our relationship has always been strong with the Flyers and we look forward to taking that to the next level. I am happy to call Trenton – the Home of Future Philadelphia Flyers.”
This will be the tenth overall season that the Flyers and Trenton have worked together to develop Flyers prospects. The Titans served as the Flyers’ ECHL affiliate from 1999 to 2007 before realigning with the Flyers again last year.
