UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Tickets for the Third Annual Philadelphia College Hockey Faceoff between the Nittany Lion men's hockey team and Vermont are on sale now. The teams will meet at the home of the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers Saturday, Jan. 31 at 1 p.m.

Tickets are on sale exclusively through, by phone at 1-800-298-4200 or in person at the Wells Fargo Center Box Office. The Penn State-Vermont matchup will serve as the opening act for a hockey doubleheader as the Flyers will host the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7 p.m.


Penn State and Vermont will meet in the showcase for the third straight season with both teams claiming victories during the first two editions. During the first contest in 2012-13, redshirt senior Taylor Holstrom (Yorba Linda, Calif.) and former Nittany Lion Justin Kirchhevel led the Nittany Lions with two points each as Penn State claimed a 4-2 victory in front of 19,529 fans. In 2013-14, Vermont skated to a 5-2 triumph after erasing an early 2-0 deficit.

The Nittany Lions boast five student-athletes from the Philadelphia area: forward Ricky DeRosa (Aston), goaltender Eamon McAdam (Perkasie) and defensemen Peter Sweetland (Newtown), David Thompson (Glen Mills) and Connor Varley (Lansdale).
