The Adirondack Phantoms were a minor professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League (AHL), who began play in the 2009–10 AHL season. The Phantoms were based in Glens Falls, New York, playing home games at the Glens Falls Civic Center. The Phantoms were the AHL affiliate of the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers. The Phantoms were located in Philadelphia from 1996 to 2009 (and known as the Philadelphia Phantoms); new ownership relocated and renamed the team.

In March 2011, plans were announced for a new arena to be built in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the future home of the Phantoms franchise. In February 2012, it was announced the Phantoms would return to Pennsylvania in 2013–14 after the new arena was completed. However, due to construction delays it was pushed back to 2014–15.

Following the 2013-14 season, the Phantoms moved to their new home at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania.


In 2008, Comcast Spectacor announced that the Wachovia Spectrum, the Phantoms' home since 1996, was going to be demolished to make way for Philly Live, a project which included a luxury hotel and entertainment district. On February 4, 2009, it was announced that Comcast Spectacor has reached an agreement to sell the Phantoms to the Brooks Group of Pittsburgh. The Phantoms are the second American Hockey League team to play in Glens Falls, New York.

The Glens Falls Civic Center was home to the Adirondack Red Wings from 1979 to 1999. On April 28, 2009 it was announced by the AHL Board of Governors that approval had been given for the Brooks Group to officially move the Phantoms to Glens Falls.
