With the start of the shortened NHL season just days away, the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday held their first official training camp at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone.
Much of the team arrived Sunday morning around 8:30 a.m. to begin workout sessions before taking the ice, the team's official website reports.
The players were scheduled to get on the ice for two training sessions.
Team officials also made some moves Sunday, including adding defenseman Kurtis Foster to the training camp roster, according to the team's website.
The Flyers open the 2012-2013 regular season at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday.
The shortened schedule has NHL teams playing through the end of April.
Waking up to dense fog today. Poor visibility slowing us down.
But at least it's mild. Temps are about 15-degrees above average today, despite the continued clouds & drizzle. High in the lower 60s.
Our next cold front comes through tomorrow, with rain, especially on Friday afternoon. With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. Stay tuned!
