The National Hockey League announced Friday the hosts of the next two NHL Drafts just hours before the 2012 edition at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center began.

The New Jersey Devils will host the 2013 NHL Draft at Prudential Center in Newark and the Philadelphia Flyers will host the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Both franchises will be hosting the Draft for the first time and the 2013 Draft will mark the first time the Draft is held in the New York City metropolitan area.

-- The Flyers continue to reap rather rich rewards from the National Hockey League.

After participating in the Winter Classic two of the past three seasons, the franchise was awarded the 2014 NHL Draft on Friday afternoon.

“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.”

Draft and Frozen Four in Philly the same year? Good stuff.

Nice. Dream scenario is us drafting a Philly boy who becomes one of the greatest Flyers ever and leads us to several cups. Make it happen.

Hope to be able to go. But as Flyers fans, we need to be clear: all must be booed. Some are obvious: Bettman, Pens, Rangers, Devils, Caps, Sabres, Bruins, Habs...but we should be equal in our collective booing of whatever GM takes the stage to announce his team's pick.

And, if people complain, which they will, I suggest we should develop a list of reasons why we are booing each team.

Spongolium* 06-22-2012 03:37 PM

Cool. Hope we have the last pick. in the first.

SolidSnakeUS 06-22-2012 03:38 PM

Awesome sauce.

dawkins121 06-22-2012 03:41 PM

I hope the Devils end up forfeiting their pick in 2013 when they have the draft.

Don't they have to? Wasn't it 2012 or 2013?

FlyerBearsCheesehead 06-22-2012 04:05 PM

I think it's their choice of either 2013 or 2014...

Hollywood Couturier 06-22-2012 04:09 PM

They chose to hold onto their pick this year so I figured it was 2012-13

JVR21 06-22-2012 04:36 PM

2014 will be a great year for hockey in Philadelphia. I'll be going to the draft and the Frozen Four for sure.

GKJ 06-22-2012 04:46 PM

Cool.



Finally.

FreshPerspective 06-22-2012 05:08 PM

Cool I look forward to all the GM's having to congratulate us on a cup win in Philly...:nod:

healthyscratch 06-22-2012 05:16 PM
