“This weekend’s coin toss in Rochester brings us another step closer to building our team in Philadelphia,” said General Manager and Head Coach Paul Day. “There is great talent throughout the league that we will work to acquire through the expansion draft in July and then having a top position in the entry draft in September will help round out our team with strong young talent. We are excited for what the next few months will bring and we are confident that Philadelphia will have a first class team on the turf in December.”
