Flyers interim GM Danny Briere met with the media on Sunday morning and officially went where his predecessor wouldn’t. The Flyers are officially in a rebuild, one that Briere says “needs to be done the right way.”
The Flyers will give a few players a second chance to see game action, with eight players on the ice in the preseason opener also on the roster for this game. The team takes on the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
A roster of young hopefuls takes on the Boston Bruins as the Flyers open the preseason at 7 p.m. on Saturday night.
Claude Giroux has appeared in every game since Jan. 13 and will take the ice for his 1,000th game in the NHL and in a Flyers uniform on Thursday night against the Nashville Predators. Prior to the game, the Flyers will hold a ceremony to honor Giroux’s milestone.
The Flyers announced on Tuesday afternoon that Danny Briere has been named a special assistant to the general manager.
Before the puck drops on the Flyers 2021-22 season, their busy offseason and several new faces bring about a number of storylines. Let’s take a look at 10 storylines that are worth watching this season for the Flyers.
Potential injuries to Wade Allison and Sam Morin have put a damper on Flyers training camp, still a few days away from getting underway.
Phantoms head coach Ian Laperriere, who is running Rookie Camp sessions, is focusing on the details on the ice, the Flyers first captain in franchise history passes away, the NHL announces its national TV schedule and more in Flyers notes.
After a busy offseason, is there still a chance for young players to make their impact on the Flyers roster this season? The possibility exists for sure. It always does. The road to get there is just going to be much more difficult this time around.
The Flyers announced the new addition on Monday, naming Darryl Williams to the team’s coaching staff alongside head coach Alain Vigneault and assistants Michel Therrien and Mike Yeo.
A year ago, Lindblom was a finalist for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, an award presented to a player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. In 2021, Lindblom takes home the hardware, officially winning the award in an announcement made on Tuesday night.
The Flyers announced on Sunday evening that Ian Laperriere has been named the head coach of the organization’s AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
As Flyers management – head coach Alain Vigneault and GM Chuck Fletcher and chairman Dave Scott – met the media on Tuesday, the trio rested on excuses for most of their comments, sounding more optimistic in hopes of a normal season than the work that may need to be done to a roster filled with holes.
The transition to playing left wing will be a work in progress for Sam Morin, who is trying his best to learn on the fly. He continues to watch film of Matt Martin, and took some advice from Danny Briere during practice as well as talking to other teammates about the position as well.
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.
From the beginning, Alain Vigneault brought in an authority and leadership that was lacking in the Flyers locker room. That leadership and guidance has given Vigneault a strong case for a Jack Adams Award nomination.
It will not go down as the most memorable decade in Flyers franchise history, but there were certainly a few great moments from start to finish in the 2010s.
Alain Vigneault provided more insight into the hiring of Michel Therrien and Mike Yeo as assistant coaches, including the roles each coach will have with the Flyers. Experience was obviously a key in Chuck Fletcher’s decision to hire Vigneault and the decision to hire Therrien and Yeo.
The Flyers announced the hiring of Michel Therrien and Mike Yeo as assistant coaches on Vigneault’s staff.
Speculation was that Dave Hakstol would exit as Flyers head coach before Ron Hextall lost his job as GM. With a new GM search underway, it would seem the coaching staff has numbered days.
There were some sloppy moments and areas of struggle that will be a concern moving forward, but for now, embrace the result after a pathetic effort one night earlier. Takeaways from Wednesday’s Flyers win in Ottawa in our Postgame Review.
