Philadelphia Flyers Rink Rats

Good morning Flyers fans! We are about 10 weeks from the start of the NHL season, but there is still hockey news out there. Take a look at the latest stories from around the NHL:

Philadelphia Flyers News

Bill Meltzer looks at how the Flyers prospect pipeline has increased over the last few years.

At the beginning of today’s daily blog, Meltzer recaps the Flyers top 10 prospects in 2010. The list is incredibly uninspiring and includes a host of career AHLers. Meltzer then ranks the Flyers top 10 prospects right now. Although there is still no guarantee that these players will ever become NHL stars, the list has a lot of promise. With three 1st round picks (Laughton, Morin, Sanheim), three 2nd round picks (Alt, Stolarz, Aube-Kubel), and a few late round choices, the Flyers look to have a bright future.

Adam Kimelman breaks down the chances of Flyers prospects making the NHL.

Over on, Adam Kimelman takes a look at Scott Laughton, Robert Hagg, and Shayne Gostisbehere. Although all three players will likely be in the AHL next season, they are all close to being “NHL ready.” The article is a balanced look at the upside of each player. Filled with quotes from the players and the Flyers development coaches, the article should make Flyers fans even more excited about the future.

A 104 year old Flyers fan has dream come true.

Bob “the Hound” Kelly stopped by the Flyers themed birthday party of  104 year old fans Helen Moser. After some small talk and the unveiling of a jersey (with the name Moser on the back and the number 104) Kelly took off his Stanley Cup ring from 1975 and let Moser try it on. The 104 year old grandmother broke down in tears. It is a very heartwarming video that reminds us how classy the Philadelphia Flyers organization is, and has been.
