The Philadelphia Phantoms were a professional ice hockey team that played in the American Hockey League (AHL) from 1996 to 2009. The club was based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and played most of its home games at the Spectrum. During schedule conflicts or some Calder Cup playoff games, games were moved to the adjacent Wachovia Center. The Phantoms won two Calder Cup titles (1998, 2005) during their tenure in Philadelphia.
In anticipation of the planned closure and demolition of the Spectrum, the franchise was sold in early 2009. The new owners moved the club to Glens Falls, New York for the 2009-10 season and renamed them the Adirondack Phantoms. Beginning in the 2013-14 season, the team will be based in Allentown, Pennsylvania in a new 8,500-seat arena. Construction of the arena began in January 2012.

“How cold the vacancy
When the phantoms are gone and the shaken realist
First sees reality. The mortal no
Has its emptiness and tragic expirations.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)

All the feet of the babies of the world were in them.

All the morning kisses of Philadelphia were in them.”
