Flyers consider inviting Gagne to camp

For 27 games Philadelphia Flyers fans were able to watch Simon Gagne back in the team’s uniform once more. One would think that the 33-year-old winger would be lost in the numbers game for the cap-challenged team but that might not be true.

Tim Panaccio: UPDATE: Claude Giroux skating, but no shots

Everyone I encountered at the construction site of what was once called Skate Zone in Voorhees, pretty had the same reaction in recent weeks. When we talked about how long an off-season it’s been, they began counting the months on their fingers. Four, full months and some days added on. That’s how long it’s been. It drove Peter Laviolette insane. You don’t...

As Eye on Hockey notes, such as is often the case for athletes who have reached the pro level in other sports, many NHL players play golf. It’s a relatively safe pastime — Claude Giroux’s experience excluded — and a great way to spend some time outside in the company of friends.
