Found September 12, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
Philadelphia Flyers goalie Steve Mason displayed his new mask and it’s, umm, interesting? There are beautiful images of some of the finest Americans in history such as Betsy Ross, Ben Franklin, and George Washington on his mask. Oh and by the way all of the American heroes are depicted as dead flesh-craving zombies. Well nothing quite says “Get ready for hockey” quite like a zombie Ben Franklin. Hopefully for Mason’s sake none of his historical zombie figures eats his brains when he’s between the pipes. [Deadspin] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Mason, Emery begin battle for Flyers' top spot

Steve Mason's goalie helmet looks like a prop straight out of ''The Walking Dead.'' His airbrushed gear includes American icons Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross and George Washington reimagined as zombies. Yes, Franklin is even, naturally, holding a skeleton key on the eye-popping design. The art seems fitting since the Flyers were a dead team walking last season -...

Pronger returns, but not the way he wants

It was only a couple weeks ago that injured defenseman Chris Pronger was last on the ice. He wasn’t playing. He was just skating with his two sons and his daughter. For a guy who’s a sure-fire Hall of Famer it didn’t go well. “Moving in a straight line slowly was OK” Pronger said. “You start turning and spinning and things like that and you get lightheaded and dizzy...

Tim Panaccio: Holmgren Explain's Cleary End Game

Clearly, this is not how the Flyers envisioned things would turn out. But if you go by public opinion, fans seem very happy that Dan Cleary deep-sixed the Flyers tryout offer and instead stuck around Detroit for two days when he was supposed to be in Philly, before finally signing a 1-year deal for a LOT less than what the FLyers generously over-offered him on a 3-year deal. ...

Is Manning No. 49?

Numbering at 49 out of 50, Brandon Manning comes in tight to be signed as another defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers. As the team is allowed 50 contracts in total on their salary cap, some have questioned the team’s choosing of Manning for a one year two way deal. At the age of 23 and under the Adirondack Phantoms, Manning scored 6 goals along with 15 assists within 65 games...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Laughton's Development

LAUGHTON WANTS MORE THAN CUP OF COFFEE Scott Laughton is a soft-spoken but highly focused young hockey player. Yesterday, the player half-jokingly said that he packed a "medium-sized" suitcase for his trip to training camp, meaning that he's equally prepared to stay put or go back to the Oshawa Generals for a fourth season in the Ontario Hockey League. The sense...

Eklund: Cleary NOT coming to Philly? Pitkanen done for the year. Hainsey? Whitney?

A few quick hits this afternoon...nice to have news happening again! Dan Cleary looked to be all set in and coming to Philly on a PTO until moments ago when sources began to text me that it appears Ckeary has gotten a better offer and he will not report to Flyers camp tomorrow...this could just be a Cap issue, but I am hearing all is open now. Also... Tough news in Carolina...

Pronger Considered A Player, Can He Also Be A Scout?

from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly, Chris Pronger walks a fine line between working for the Flyers in a scouting capacity and sitting in on meetings with management, all the while being a dues-paying member of the NHLPA. Such is the life of a former player, struck down by post-concussion syndrome, and living between two worlds -- permanently disabled player and club scouting...

Eklund: Gagne Still Hunting for a Team... But Does Have Options

Earlier this week, at the time they thought they had an agreement with Dan Cleary, the Flyers informed unrestricted free agent winger Simon Gagne that he would not receive a contract or a tryout invite. That has not, and will not, change even after Cleary elected to sign in Detroit. However, that does not mean Gagne will be without an NHL team this season. Although it has been...

Phantoms: New Home, New Hope – History of Glens Falls

We now find ourselves on the cusp of new NHL and AHL seasons. The Flyers look to bounce back to their normal playoff-worthy hockey, while the Phantoms look to just win some games for a change. Who knows what the product on the ice for the Phantoms will be this season, but one guaranteed difference will be the fact that this will be their last season as the “Adirondack” Phantoms...
