Good morning Flyers fans! In just about nine weeks, we will have hockey back. But in the mean time, let’s take a look at the latest stories form around the NHL and Flyers nation:
Philadelphia Flyers News
Over on the Philadelphia Flyers official website there is a competition going on. Fans can vote for their favorite plays of the year. As the competition comes to completion, it is time to vote on the best hit of the year. The two nominees are hits by Zac Rinaldo. One is a hit on New York Rangers forward Dan Carcillo and the other is a hit on LA Kings forward Kyle Clifford. Which Rinaldo hit will move on?
Our own Tom Foti has started a series counting down the best Flyer to hold each number (starting from 50 and moving down). Yesterday he stumbled upon the number 48. A fan favorite, Briere was a clutch playoff performer and a standout in the Philly community. He is the best Flyer to wear the number 48.
In his daily blog on 8/5/14 Bill Meltzer takes a look at former Flyers player, coach, and assistant GM John Paddock. Paddock, after being relieved from his assistant coaching duties, has taken a job with the Regina Pats of the WHL. Paddock will have both a coaching and managerial role. Meltzer also gives an update of the many Flyers prospects who are currently in World Junior Evaluation Camps. Robert Hagg, Oskar Lindblom, Travis Sanheim, and Sam Morin are involved, to name a few.
