Happy Thanksgiving from Broad Street Hockey

Happy Thanksgiving from Broad Street Hockey

Photo by Brian Born/NHLI via Enjoy the holiday responsibly this year, and share some of what you’re thankful for Flyers fans. Though 2020 hasn’t quite been the best — and hopefully there’s hope around the corner — there’s still a whole lot to be thankful for out there Flyers fans. We’re still waiting on a concrete plan for the 2020-21 NHL season, but there’s plenty of optimism around that soon enough we’ll be headed for puck drop. We don’t quite know what it’ll look like, but at least the dreaded “L” word isn’t an issue. And whenever the...

2019-20 Player Review: Nate Thompson played some hockey

2019-20 Player Review: Nate Thompson played some hockey

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via The mid-season acquisition was here and on the ice in the bubble. When the Philadelphia Flyers were in the middle of one of their best seasons in recent memory, they sought out to get a little more ready for the playoffs at the trade deadline last February. With their top forwards locked into their position and no real reason to trade future assets for a high-quality rental, they opted for the safer approach and acquired forward depth. One of those forwards was established center Nate Thompson from the Montreal Canadiens for nothing...

2019-20 Player Review: Joel Farabee shows flashes in solid rookie season

2019-20 Player Review: Joel Farabee shows flashes in solid rookie season

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ The 20 year old was certainly buzzing at times this season. One of the many bright spots of this season for the Flyers, and us as fans, was Joel Farabee making the jump to the NHL this season. The 2018 first round pick almost immediately showed why he deserved to be here. His heralded hockey sense was on display from the jump, helping his transition from college hockey to the Phantoms, and then to the Flyers. Let’s take a look at what the leading rookie scorer for the orange and black did this season. By the numbers Farabee’s 21 points in...

According to Jeff Cox of the New England Hockey Journal Philadelphia Flyers’ prospect Jack St. Ivany has entered the NCAA’s transfer portal with the intention of joining Boston College. The defenseman, who has yet to play a game in the 2020-21 season, would be eligible to play for the Eagles once the first semester is over.

2019-20 Player Review: Scott Laughton’s season defined by puck luck, utility

2019-20 Player Review: Scott Laughton’s season defined by puck luck, utility

Photo by Elsa/ The forward set a career high in goals and played all over the lineup. It was only a few seasons ago that it looked as though Scott Laughton was a bust. Although he may not live up to his potential of going 20th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft it’s safe to say the former OHLer serves a beneficial role for the Philadelphia Flyers at the NHL level. After a few rough seasons for himself and the penalty kill, Laughton was part of a special teams’ unit that finally moved up to the top half of the league in terms of success for the first time since...

A look at which Flyers overachieved in 2019-20

A look at which Flyers overachieved in 2019-20

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via Regression comes for us all eventually. The term overachiever is usually seen as a positive descriptor. By definition, an overachiever is someone who achieves success over and above the standard or expected level. But right there is the key — over the expected level. In hockey, more often than not overachievement leads to a letdown just one year later. Luck plays a pretty sizable role in hockey. Goals win you games, and the ratio of goals for to goals against with any given player on the ice can be quite volatile year to year. The...

The Flyers’ World Cup of Hockey: Canada

The Flyers’ World Cup of Hockey: Canada

And last but not least, the big boys. Teams: Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Russia, Rest of Europe, United States And now, we will wrap up the introductory segment of this series with Canada, the nation with the most representation historically, hands down. Well over half of the skaters who have ever played a game with the Flyers were/are Canadian (a whopping 399 out of 575!). So, naturally, for this team you’re going to be getting nothing but the best players, and yeah, this is one scary line-up. For the sake of making things fair, I’m going to try and be inclusive of...

The Flyers’ tricky contract extension negotiations with Carter Hart

The Flyers’ tricky contract extension negotiations with Carter Hart

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via There’s been very little noise about a potential extension for the goalie who’s quickly becoming a (the?) face of the franchise. In fairness, though, there aren’t many data points to work with when it comes to an extension. So the offseason’s still happening. For some undeterminate amount of time — the league says January 1, but who knows — we’re without hockey. It may be a quickly-coldening, pandemic-stricken November, but in the context of the hockey calendar, it is August as hell over here. And the Flyers’...

2019-20 Player Review: Michael Raffl does it again

Photo by Chase Agnello-Dean/NHLI via Yep, still good. We’re back again with another season review, and if we need some good thoughts for our Monday, well, we’ve got some here. What can we say about Michael Raffl? He’s nothing if not consistent, he’s been good for his whole tenure with the team, and he delivered yet another solid season this year. It wasn’t perfect, but he is a player that you know what you’re going to get from him, and for the most part, that was true again this season. But that’s enough introduction, let’s get right into the breakdown,...
