Giroux Feeds Philly Media With Embarassing Arrest

2012 NHL All-Star Game - Player Media Availability

“We are aware of reports surrounding Claude Giroux. Until we have more information, we will withhold making any further comment.”
That was all Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall had to say this morning when reports surfaced from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun that Philadelphia Flyers captain and Hearst (a suburb of Ottawa) native Claude […]

Flyers Continue to Add Depth on Day 2 of Free Agency


Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall took care of immediate business on Tuesday with the re-signing of back-up goaltender Ray Emery. Following up the AHL depth signings of goaltender Rob Zepp and centerman Blair Jones, Hextall and his staff continued on Wednesday plugging in additional Flyers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms depth players.
Right winger Jason Akeson, […]

Hextall Takes Care of Business on First Day of Free Agency


The Philadelphia Flyers organization has often been linked in rumors with every high-priced free agent available on July 1. Bankrolled by Ed Snider, management could afford to throw ludicrous sums of money at free agents.
This approach backfired in the summer of 2012, when then-general manager Paul Holmgren first threw all of his efforts into signing […]

Flyers Qualify Just Four RFAs in Start of Hextall Era


An ongoing problem in the Paul Holmgren era for the Philadelphia Flyers was a lack of contract space.
The organization regularly flirted with the fifty-contract limit, ignoring the additional “slide rule” affected contracts that allowed for players under the age of 20 with entry level contracts to not count towards that limit.
In 2011, the organization had […]

Flyers Round Out Draft With Curious But Talented Selections


The 2014 NHL Entry Draft continued Saturday morning with rounds two through seven. The Flyers had fairly strong draft classes in 2011 and 2012, though the jury is out on the selections from 2013.
The best way I can describe the 2014 draft class for Philadelphia is “Curious.”
For one, the Flyers did not draft a single […]

Flyers Select Defenseman Travis Sanheim with 17th Overall Pick


There was ample chatter throughout the day with regards to trades before and during the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
The Anaheim Ducks acquired centerman Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for former Flyer Luca Sbisa, forward Nick Bonino and their 24th overall pick.
The Pittsburgh Penguins traded winger James Neal to the Nashville Predators for […]

Flyers Rumored to Be Eyeing a Move Up the Draft Board

2011 NHL Entry Draft - Rounds 2-7

The Philadelphia Flyers, hosts of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft beginning this Friday, are currently scheduled to select their first pick following 16 other general managers.
Per the latest round of rumors, general manager Ron Hextall may be looking to make his first selection a bit earlier.
Draft picks in the top ten don’t move that often, […]

Time Running Out For Tye McGinn?


The philosophy touted by new Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall in the past month and a half has been “build though the draft.”
Hextall also stressed back in May the key positions to build around.
Per Dave Isaac of the Courier Post:
“The one thing that hasn’t changed in my mind about building a team is build […]

Peter Forsberg to be Inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame


At 3:00 p.m. Monday afternoon, the Hockey Hall of Fame announced the 2014 nominees for the 2014 Hall of Fame Class.
Former Philadelphia Flyer Peter Forsberg will join Rob Blake, Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, veteran coach Pat Burns and referee Bill McCreary amongst the revered legends of hockey history later this year.
Forsberg was drafted 6th overall […]

Brayden Schenn Re-Signed for Two Years, $5 Million


Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall expertly diverted this afternoon some of the criticisms lobbied towards his first move today- trading veteran forward Scott Hartnell- with a more even-keeled, cost-effective move- re-signing restricted free agent Brayden Schenn.
Per Bob McKenzie of TSN, Schenn’s new contract is worth $2.25 million in the first year and $2.75 million […]
