Good morning Philadelphia Flyers fans! We are in the midst of the Flyers development camp, so there is no shortage of news! Take a look at the latest stories from around the NHL:
Philadelphia Flyers News
The Flyers 2nd round pick in 2013 has been characterized as lazy. People question his “compete level” and whether or not the game comes to easy to him. In this wonderful piece on the Flyers official website, Jay Greenberg shows us why those characterizations of Hagg are bogus. There is a video interview of Hagg as well.
In his first blog entry, Sanheim recounts the events that transpired in his life between getting drafted and his first few days of development camp. The article gives a great glimpse into the daily life at camp and the relationships between the prospects.
Dave Issac gives us a glimpse into the psyche of Scott Laughton. The Flyers 1st round pick in 2012 is willing to sacrifice his position to make the roster this season. He is a natural center, but he is willing to play wing to make the NHL. Laughton is haunted by the fact that he was healthy scratch at the beginning of last season.
With the Flyers new found group of prospects, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms may be in a position to be successful next season. Ron Hextall has also made a group of free agent signings that should make the Phantoms comeptitive.
