As first reported here a few months ago, Malvern Prep will play La Salle College High School at Citizens Bank Park as part of the first ever “High School Holiday Classic.”

Here are the details from Malvern:

The Malvern Prep Varsity Ice Hockey Team will face off against La Salle College High School at Citizens Bank Park in January as part of the NHL's Annual Winter Classic festivities.

The Malvern-La Salle game will take place on Wednesday, January 4, at 5:00 p.m. at the ballpark, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies.  The game, being dubbed the first annual High School Holiday Classic, will be followed by a college contest between Neumann University and Penn State.  The Malvern-La Salle game will be a rematch of last season's Flyers Cup Championship in which La Salle defeated Malvern 3-2 in sudden death overtime at the Wells Fargo Center. 

Tickets to the Malvern-LaSalle game will be $10 in advance and $15 at the game.  Details will go on sale on the Malvern website in December.


There you have it– more outdoor hockey. Seems like a good spot for my Friars to get revenge on La Salle for the Patrick Kane-like overtime winner in last year’s Flyers Cup final.

Carry on.

Would I be posting this if I wasn’t a Malvern Hockey (we capitalize that H, yo) alumnus? No, probably not. But I am, so here’s the scoop:

According to a couple sources, Malvern Prep and La Salle are in final talks to play at Citizens Bank Park on one of the days surrounding the yet-unannounced Winter Classic. The two schools met in the Flyers Cup final this spring, with LaSalle winning on a Patrick Kane-esque goal in overtime. Malvern and La Salle consistently field the best hockey teams in the Philly area. Sorry, everyone else.

The game would be in addition to the anticipated New Year’s Eve Alumni Classic (don’t be shocked to see the Legion of Doom), January 6th Phantoms game, and rumored January 4th Penn State vs. Neumann game. We’re just one step away from having a Christmas Day Mites on Ice contest between the Quakers and whatever school Paul Holmgren’s kids went to.

None of this is official, however…. because the Winter Classic is yet to be announced.
