Flyers Set Opening Night Roster


The Flyers have announced the official starting roster for the season opener tomorrow. Seeing as how they recently signed Hal Gill, I’d imagine that someone might be dropped from the roster to make room for an 8th defenseman. That person would probably end up being Jay Rosehill, since he doesn’t bring much to the game other than his fists (and Rinaldo could easily fill that role if need be).

The Flyers have until 5:00PM today to make any changes and this post will be updated if anything changes.
