The Flyers have a new affiliate in Trenton.

The Trenton Titans are returning to play the 2011-12 season in the East Coast Hockey League. The Titans were affiliated with the Flyers from 1999-2006.

“The Philadelphia Flyers and the Comcast-Spectacor family of companies are excited to be affiliated with the Trenton Titans," Comcast-Spectacor president Peter Luukko said. “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.”

Trenton will serve as the Flyers’ secondary affiliate for the upcoming season. 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.
