Flyers-Phantoms game to benefit storm victims


Compiled By The Inquirer Staff

The Flyers and Phantoms will help victims of Hurricane Katrina by playing a benefit game at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, Camden County.

The game was organized by Jim McCrossin, the Flyers' new trainer and strength and conditioning coach. Tickets are $10, with proceeds going to victims in Louisiana and Mississippi. After the game, autographed sticks will be auctioned and fans can have their photo taken with their favorite player.

"Every day, you turn on the TV and it gets worse and worse," Flyers forward Simon Gagne said yesterday. "If we can do something to help them, it'll be great."

Added team captain Keith Primeau: "It's a last-minute thing. People are excited about the team coming back. They can see 85 to 90 percent of the team together on the ice, and it's for a worthwhile cause."
