Jori Lehtera Needed a Change of Scenery

When the Flyers acquired Jori Lehtera in the Brayden Schenn deal back in June, some of the pundits who cover the team weren’t thrilled. I even read he was overpaid and not that good. I suspect that “hot take” will change. This version of the talented Finn is trimmer and

Flyers 2017 Early Session Training Camp Notes

German Rubstov – In 3-on-3 he really snuck behind the defense to get a goal. He can be physical but he also has a great hockey sense to make plays like that. Mark Friedman – He continues to look fast and strong. He frustrated offensive players by freezing the puck along

Mathias Emilio Pettersen – The Next Norwegian Sensation

Whenever NHL fans talk about hockey players out of Norway, Mats Zuccarello is the gold standard. Compared to any other Norwegian NHLer, his 262 points is a cut above. The next Norwegian player we’ll start to talk about is Mathias Emilio Pettersen. Pettersen, 17 (his birthday is April 3rd), will be

This is Rasmus Dahlin’s Year

Rasmus Dahlin could be a generational defenseman. In today’s NHL that means he will be a very rich young man in a short amount of time. I won’t say he’s guaranteed to go first overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft just yet. The World Junior Summer Showcase is really

Goon: Last of the Enforcers Delivers: Review

The city of Reading, PA is proudly displayed in this movie. It starts with a big-league lockout angle. Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott) was made the captain and not all of his teammates were thrilled for him. As Doug always does he fended off the competition with his fists and

Noah Cates Is Wise Beyond His Years

Some players stand out in development camps because of their play. Noah Cates certainly did that. I felt like it took him a day to get used to the talent level and by Day 2 I gave him this report: Noah Cates – 6-1, 165 – LW – Stillwater High School
