Trenton Titans Return, Enter into Affiliation Agreement with Flyers

Published on August 1st, 2011

The Trenton Titans are back after a 4-year absence.  They were the Trenton Devils from 2007 until this year.  They are also once again the ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers as they were from their inception in 1999 until 2007.

“The Philadelphia Flyers and the Comcast-Spectacor Family of Companies are excited to be affiliated with the Trenton Titans,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko.  “As our ECHL affiliate, we’re confident that our prospects will be playing in an environment here in Trenton that will help them develop their ultimate potential.”

The agreement also includes cross-promotional opportunities to help the Titans sell tickets through the Flyers fan base.

“In addition, with our management company, Global Spectrum, operating the arena, and with our advertising and sales division, Front Row Marketing Services, selling sponsorship opportunities for the Titans, we will create cross-promotional opportunities to help grow their fan base and fill the arena,” added Luukko.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for hockey fans in Trenton and the surrounding region to identify new up-and-coming future prospects and watch them grow into possible NHL stars,” said Luukko.

“To be affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers and Adirondack Phantoms will greatly enhance what it means to be a member of the Trenton Titans,” said Titans President/CEO Rich Lisk.  “The Flyers are committed to winning at every level.  We hope to help them with that commitment by developing their future AHL and NHL players.”

Notable former Flyers who skated for the Titans include Ruslan Fedotenko, Todd Fedoruk, and Jesse Boulerice. 

Trenton will serve as Philadelphia’s secondary affiliate for the upcoming season.  They will continue to play at the Sun National Bank Center.  Under the agreement, players under contract to the Flyers or to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, can be assigned to the Titans.  Trenton replaces the Greenville Road Warriors, which served as the Flyers’ ECHL affiliate during the 2010-11 season.
