Friday Morning Fly By: Happy Canada Day!

It’s Canada Day for our friends up north and the kickoff to the July 4th weekend for us down here... can’t go wrong. So naturally we’ll kick things off with this whole Ryan Ellis situation, which could not possibly be more up in the air. [NBC Sports Philly] *In his presser the other day Chuck Fletcher certainly made it seem like the Flyers will be making their pick next Thursday. But a...

Fletcher open to trading first-round pick, but only at right price

Fletcher open to trading first-round pick, but only at right price

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ Chuck Fletcher breaks down the Flyers’ hopes for the draft and updates the status of Joel Farabee and Ryan Ellis. Wednesday afternoon, Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher and assistant general manager Brent Flahr spoke with the media as they prepare for the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The Flyers currently own the No. 5 overall pick of the draft, but it’s no guarantee they’ll keep their selection — especially after they shipped off last year’s first-round pick (and change) to acquire Rasmus Ristolainen from the Buffalo Sabres. Fletcher’s...

And as such we heard from Chuck yesterday; there were updates, answers, non-answers, everything you’d expect from an NHL front office presser. [Inquirer] *Chuck’s not going to be able to rest on his laurels either because the first big trade of the offseason happened yesterday. So we are off to the races. [ProHockeyTalk] *Evidently...

The Flyers, though, announced a cool new charity thing they’ll be doing next season. [Inquirer] *Right, so the draft. Yesterday Margarita Bobby released his final rankings, and these are the ones that are typically in line with what happens on draft day. His top-5 are interesting, considering everything we’ve heard for the last year. [TSN] *Bob seems to think we’ll be...

NHL Mock Draft 2022: Philadelphia Flyers select David Jiricek with No. 5 pick

Photo by Codie McLachlan/ The pick is in, and we kept it! The SB Nation mock draft rolls on, and just like that, we’ve made it through the first four picks and the Flyers are on the clock. Jump to the end for spoilers on those first few picks, but we’re just about right where we expected to be at this point in the first round. So what are the Flyers doing? We’re glad you asked. With the fifth overall pick, the Flyers select *pause for dramatic effect* David Jiricek. Pre-draft rankings Elite Prospects: #2 FCHockey: #11 McKeen’s: #5 Bob McKenzie (TSN): #7 Craig...

BSH 2022 Community Draft Board, No. 26: Liam Ohgren

BSH 2022 Community Draft Board, No. 26: Liam Ohgren

Daniel Eriksson If he’s not exciting, he must be a perfect fit for the Flyers. One of the prospects this year that seems to have people split is 6-foot-1, 201-pound left winger Liam Ohgren. Some rankings have him as high as late in the lottery, while others have him as low as a second-rounder. This most likely has to do with his skill set, in the sense that he does basically everything very good but doesn’t excel in one particular area. He has a good shot, but wasn’t able to use it effectively in the SHL last season. Ohgren is also a responsible defender and will...

MONTHS. [BSH] *But people seem to think John Tortorella will make a big difference. So there’s that. Might not have any players but the ones...

Joel Farabee to miss 3-4 months

Joel Farabee to miss 3-4 months

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via One of the Flyers’ top forwards could potentially miss the start of the season. One of the Flyers’ top forwards is going to be out of commission for a while. Joel Farabee underwent successful disc replacement surgery in his cervical region Friday morning, the Flyers announced. The 22-year-old is expected to recover in 3-4 months. The Flyers begin training camp on September 21, so it’s likely Farabee, at the very least, will miss a significant portion of the team’s first training camp under new head coach John Tortorella. INJURY...

John Tortorella is basically already planning for life after Chuck Fletcher

Photo by Norm Hall/NHLI via The heat is on the Flyers’ general manager at the controls of a team that has regressed badly and missed the Stanley Cup playoffs in back-to-back seasons. John Tortorella might be new in terms of being the Philadelphia Flyers’ head coach, but the veteran bench boss knows a thing or two about longevity. Despite a reputation as demanding boss — and former players aren’t shy to back that up, both in support and against Tortorella — his shortest stint behind an NHL bench is one full season with the Vancouver Canucks. That 82-game...

It has been a whole week since the Flyers hired John Tortorella, and shockingly enough the gang still has some things to say about him. His coaching style, how he will interact with the players, and what his presence will ultimately mean for the success of next season’s flyers. There’s also a look into the collective mind of the Flyers fan base, and some talk about the Stanley Cup Final, headed to Game 5 on Friday.

Flyers re-sign Felix Sandstrom

Flyers re-sign Felix Sandstrom

Photo by Jonathan Kozub/NHLI via Ivan Fedotov will have some competition for the backup job. The Flyers re-signed goalie Felix Sandstrom to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday. Sandstrom’s contract has an average annual value of $775,000, making him the least expensive goalie currently under contract in the Flyers’ system. Sandstrom, 25, made his NHL debut in December against the San Jose Sharks, making 43 saves to set the all-time franchise record for most saves by a goalie in their debut. He appeared in five total games in the regular...
