After completing training camp, the Flyers open the preseason in London, Ontario against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Hockey is back as the Flyers open the 2013-14 preseason. Their first game is a traditional meeting at a neutral location.
It is marked on the schedule as a home game, but the Flyers and Leafs traditionally face off in an annual preseason game in London, Ontario.
The Flyers will be without several players for a time. The preseason is usually not about the veterans getting game action as much as it is the younger players competing for spots.
Among the young forwards are players with NHL experience from last season. Jason Akeson, Scott Laughton and Tye McGinn all played for the Flyers last season and get their chance at a roster spot in the preseason.
On defense, Erik Gustafsson, Brandon Manning and Oliver Lauridsen also joined the Flyers in the previous few seasons for their first NHL games.
In goal, prospects Cal Heeter and Anthony Stolarz will likely see some pl...

SATURDAY QUICK HITS
* Claude Giroux skated twice yesterday at the Flyers training camp in Voorhees, going out with the first and third groups on the ice. During the first session, the Flyers captain tested out his hand by shooting the puck. That activity was not supposed to be part of his recovery timetable from right index finger tendon repair surgery until next week.
Earlier this week, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren stated that Philadelphia would not be seeking to re-sign free agent veteran Simon Gagne. Gagne has now responded, these quotes coming via simongagne.com.

Matt Read said his agent and the Flyers are discussing a contract extension. Read, who signed a 3-year deal in 2011, will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2013-14 season.
Simon Gagne is furious at the Flyers – in particular GM Paul Holmgren – after Holmgren announced the team will not re-sign the veteran. Gagne was apparently banking on a return to Philadelphia, and...

An interesting week for concussions as they pertain to the Flyers:
1) Mark Alt gets one in Virginia during a rookie game against the Washington Caps rooks but is fine two days later and goes through rest of camp without a hitch;
2) Chris Pronger confirms that while he may look and seem better, he is still dogged by headaches and balance issues if he does anything on the ice...

The Philadelphia Flyers traveled to London, Ontario on Sunday to play the Toronto Maple Leafs in the opener to the 2013 NHL Preseason.
Head coach Peter Laviolette opted to start Steve Mason in net, but his night got off to a rather inauspicious start. After a bad pinch by Erik Gustafsson and a ineffective diving attempt by Hal Gill, Maple Leafs rising star Nazem...

The Flyers fell into a quick 3-0 hole in the first period, battled back to tie the game early in the middle stanza but let in the next goal shortly thereafter and were unable to find another equalizer.
The game was...
