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

Mitchell Vande Sompel Showed His Stuff in Philly

Philadelphia - - The Islanders beat the Flyers in a rookie game. The results aren’t that important. Mitchell Vande Sompel scored the OT game-winner but that was just icing on the cake of an already solid night. “It was a bit sloppy. It was our first high intensity game. Everything’s going

2017 Metro Rookie Camp Notes

Nolan Patrick looked fast, stronger than a few months ago and his hands are just as good as they ever were. Sometimes after an injury layoff they take some time to get back to where the player was before. Not with Patrick. I saw him passing as seamlessly as he

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

2017 Flyers Development Camp Day Two

Darion Hanson – 6-3, 180 – G – Union Commit - He's good post to post. Quick up and down. Covers corners well. Quick cover ups. His head trajectory in traffic needs work. He rarely sees that first puck in traffic. And then you can beat him glove side in

Dayton Rasmussen Had an Impressive Combine

  Buffalo - - One player was ready to attack the rigors of the NHL Combine was goaltender, Dayton Rasmussen. The 6-2, 200 pounds this goaltender is physically “ripped”. Watching him on the long jump he held his own. I was anticipating him on the bench press and that’s when he

Felix Sandstrom – – Has His Eyes On the Prize

Montreal - - Team Sweden is very talented. They’re focused on winning it all. This instantly puts a ton of pressure on Flyers draft pick, Felix Sandstrom. In a recent 8-3 win over Slovakia, Sandstrom had some shaky moments.  Even though Sandstrom was a bit scrambly and had trouble with

Travis Sanheim: “This is a Big Summer For Me”

Travis Sanheim isn’t looked at as a first round pick anymore. Now he’s looked at as another talented defenseman in a growing stable. Flyers GM Ron Hextall plays no favorites. He favors results. He had to like Sanheim pinning the very talented and slippery Travis Konecny in the recent 3-on-3
