Kyle Collington and Kevin Durso are here to discuss the four trades the Flyers made this week, going through each trade, as well as looking at GM Chuck Fletcher’s comments about gaining more energy and changing the mood in the locker room.
On the Flyers end, the selection by the Seattle Kraken was rather surprising. While many focused on names like Jake Voracek, James van Riemsdyk, Shayne Gostisbehere, Justin Braun and Robert Hagg, who were left unprotected, the Kraken selected forward Carsen Twarynski as their pick from Philadelphia.
The Flyers were back on Tuesday for practice with a limited group and more players are expected to rejoin the team on Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s game against the New York Rangers. The Flyers also had five games rescheduled by the NHL in the wake of COVID-19 caused postponements.
The final day before the start of the 2020-21 season is here, and that means roster decisions are due. The Flyers have officially announced their roster for opening night of the 2020-21 season.
Seven players from the 41-man training camp roster were placed on waivers for the purposes of going to the AHL or taxi squad that will allow the Flyers to make recalls much easier in this unprecedented season.
On Saturday, the Flyers released their roster and schedule for training camp ahead of the 2020-21 season, set to begin in just 11 days.
Alain Vigneault’s second season as Flyers head coach will begin next month on Jan. 13, when the NHL opens the 2020-21 season. The 56-game condensed schedule, realigned divisions, empty arenas and shortened training camp present a new set of challenges.
The NHL may be expanding rosters to a maximum of 29 available players with four to six on a “taxi squad.” With the expanded rosters, there are a number of Flyers prospects that could get a new opportunity to make the team.
In total, 17 forwards of 18 in camp and 10 defensemen of 12 in camp made the roster. All four goalies from camp made the trip. Here is the Flyers final roster for Phase 4.
During the first period of a three-period scrimmage on Tuesday, goalie Carter Hart left the ice and did not return. He was scheduled to speak to the media following the scrimmage, but was pulled from the availability list, indicating a potential injury.
The Flyers were back on the ice for Day 1 of Phase 3 training camps as they prepare for the return to play and the 24-team playoff that is about to take place and the first practice was a test of conditioning to evaluate where each player is after a four-month pause.
As Phase 3 of the NHL’s return-to-play plan begin, the Flyers unveiled their roster for training camp on Monday morning.
The Flyers announced that they have signed defenseman Linus Hogberg to an entry-level deal.
The Flyers signed forward Wade Allison to an entry-level deal on Friday.
Flyers forward Joel Farabee has been suspended for three games for a late hit on Winnipeg’s Mathieu Perreault in Sunday’s loss to the Jets.
Forward Morgan Frost has been called up by the Flyers and forward Carsen Twarynski has been sent down.
The result may have been a 2-1 shootout loss for the Flyers, snapping a four-game winning streak, but it was once again a small moral victory early in the season, a game where they at least showed they can hang with a top contender in the league.
Sean Couturier had the heroics, scoring the game-winning goal on a shot that leaked through Price in the Flyers 3-2 win over the Canadiens on Thursday night, a just reward for the team that had dominated for most of regulation. Here are some observations from the Flyers overtime win.
The Flyers had the only shot in the 55 seconds of overtime. It was a shot by Sean Couturier that leaked through Carey Price and crawled across the goal line to give the Flyers the 3-2 overtime win over the Canadiens on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers 4-3 shootout win against the New Jersey Devils certainly was not pretty, but it was a much-needed road win to get things back on track. Here are a few observations from the win over the Devils.
Defenseman Phil Myers and forwards German Rubtsov and Carsen Twarynski were called up from Lehigh Valley. Forward Mikhail Vorobyev was sent down. Defenseman Sam Morin was sent to the Phantoms on a conditioning assignment.
Joel Farabee was called up by the Flyers on Sunday along with forward Mikhail Vorobyev, while forward Carsen Twarynski was sent down to the Phantoms. Farabee’s NHL debut will likely come on Monday night when the Flyers host the Vegas Golden Knights.
Oskar Lindblom tied the game with 5:02 to play in the third, helping the Flyers force overtime and keep their points streak alive at three games. But Jacob Markstrom and the Canucks got the last laugh in a 3-2 shootout win.
After a fairly sloppy and wide-open first period against the Blackhawks, the Flyers started to tighten things up in the second and third periods, playing a solid all-around game. It’s only the first step to having a better start than in years past, but very early on you saw the potential the Flyers have to offer.
