VOORHEES, N.J. -- Only the Philadelphia Flyers could kick off the season with a ceremonial slash.

But that's what Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, GM Paul Holmgren, President Peter Luukko and a few other dignitaries did to open training camp Friday at Flyers Skate Zone, using hockey sticks to cut a black and orange ribbon in front of a crowd of about 200.

The day also was designed to introduce the club's new road jersey, which is identical to the one the Flyers wore at last season's Winter Classic.

"The reason we made the move was the overwhelming response to it from the fans when we wore it for the Winter Classic," Flyers Senior Vice President of Business Operations Shawn Tilger told "Everyone loved it. It was more, 'Why not listen to the fans'"

The jersey is white with an orange swirl down each sleeve and an orange band around the waist. On the back, the white letters are laid on a black nameplate and the numbers on the back are orange with a black outline. The only thing missing from Jan. 1 in Boston is the Winter Classic patch.

Flyers captain Mike Richards was on hand to model the jersey, marking the first time he's appeared publicly since the end of the Stanley Cup Final.

"It's nice to get back into the swing of things," Richards said. "Things like this means you're ramping up toward the season. It's nice to be back."
