PITTSBURGH - Philadelphia is becoming the center of the hockey universe.
The NHL draft will be held at the Wells Fargo Center in 2014, the league announced Friday.
"It shows we're a hockey town and not just a Flyers town," said Peter Luukko, president of Comcast-Spectacor, the Flyers' parent company. ". . . It's a confirmation of where we've come as a hockey market."
Luukko estimated that the draft would pump about $30 million into the local economy.
"The hotels and restaurants will be full, and it brings people from all over the world." he said.
