With the preseason in the books, the time has come for the Flyers to make the final preparations for the season opener on Thursday. Part of that was making final cuts.

The team sent defensemen Phil Myers and Mark Friedman as well as goalie Carter Hart to the Phantoms on Sunday, leaving one move left to be made on Monday to reach the 23-man limit.

With their final roster move, the Flyers placed forward forwards Dale Weise and Taylor Leier on waivers for designation of assignment to the Phantoms. If and when both clear at noon on Tuesday, they can be sent to the minors and the Flyers final roster will be set.

The Flyers final 22-man roster is as follows:


11 Travis Konecny
12 Michael Raffl
14 Sean Couturier
15 Jori Lehtera
17 Wayne Simmonds
19 Nolan Patrick
21 Scott Laughton
25 James van Riemsdyk
28 Claude Giroux
40 Jordan Weal
46 Mikhail Vorobyev
54 Oskar Lindblom
93 Jake Voracek


3 Radko Gudas
6 Travis Sanheim
8 Robert Hagg
9 Ivan Provorov
26 Christian Folin
47 Andrew MacDonald
53 Shayne Gostisbehere


37 Brian Elliott
41 Anthony Stolarz

The Flyers open the season on Thursday night against the Vegas Golden Knights at 10 p.m.
