A game-time temperature of 40 degrees, partly cloudy skies and 13,091 hockey fans witnessing hockey the way many professional players first learned the game and began developing their skills.

That was the scene for the 2018 AHL Outdoor Classic at Hersheypark Stadium — the league’s 10th outdoor game — Saturday night as the the Lehigh Valley Phantoms topped the host Hershey Bears 5-2.
