As the NCAA hockey season begins to wrap up, many college prospects are on the hunt for NHL teams to call home. In Kyle Flanagan‘s case, the Philadelphia Flyers were more than happy to oblige. According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Philadelphia has come to terms with Flanagan, who spent the last four years at St. Lawrence Unviersity.

The upper management of the Philadelphia Flyers organization and a large segment of its fanbase are notorious for their impatience and what-have-you-done-for-us-lately assessments of personnel. Patience is at a minimum in this city, and it doesn't take much struggle for a young player to go from "untouchable" to the subject of a variety of trade rumors.
According to Finnish website Kavela.fl, Kärpät, a team in the SM-Liga, will likely sign Toronto Marlies goaltender Jussi Rynnas, replacing former Philadelphia Flyers goalie Johan Backland who is expected to leave at the end of the season. As a younger player, Rynnäs was never considered a prime talent and was, for example, never drafted in the [...]
It’s been a tough season. Things began spiraling out of control too quickly to recover, and now, our Philadelphia Flyers are on the brink of calling it a season. One player that came into the season with many questions is Danny Briere. Danny B is known for many things, roommate to Claude Giroux, roommate to [...]
Stop me if you've heard this one before: An eminently winnable hockey game ended with the Philadelphia Flyers coming out on the wrong end of the score and leaving the building with zero points. After last night's 4-2 loss in Tampa Bay, the Flyers fell to 1-6-0 in games that entered the third period with a tie score.
