50 years in the making, we’re ready for our 50th Anniversary season! pic.twitter.com/CNE1wMOaNR — Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) February 10, 2016 On Feb. 9, 1966, the Philadelphia Flyers were born as Ed Snider got the call that Philadelphia had been awarded an NHL franchise. Tuesday marked the 50th anniversary of that call and the birth of the team that would later go on to be named the Flyers and debut in the 1967-68 season. The Flyers will mark their 50th anniversary season in the 2016-17 season and have some big plans for the year, many of which are being unveiled during... Continue reading

The Flyers had already been handed the challenge of playing a difficult back-to-back without their best defensive forward with the news of Sean Couturier's injury on Friday. Just over halfway through the first period of Saturday's game with the Rangers, they were forced to play without their offensive force of late. Wayne Simmonds was given a match penalty for in throwing a punch at Ryan McDonagh, leaving the Flyers shorthanded for the remainder of the game. The Flyers were 12 seconds from keeping the train moving when Keith Yandle scored to tie the game. The Rangers went on to win... Continue reading

The NHL tough guy was voted a captain and is honoring that selection for all the right reasons Embed from Getty Images It started off as a joke, a mockery of the NHL's All-Star Game selection process. The NHL recognized it and tried to prevent it from happening. They couldn't. When John Scott, longtime NHL tough guy and role player, took the ice for Saturday's skills competition as part of All-Star weekend in Nashville, he did so to a standing ovation. By this point, his story is well-known and his reason for following through with an unlikely All-Star selection has... Continue reading

Embed from Getty Images The hope of all NHL teams over the All-Star break is to get healthier for the stretch run of the season. The Flyers certainly needed the break, having played three straight games without Sean Couturier and dealing with health questions to both goalies Michal Neuvirth and Steve Mason. The break did not help one of the Flyers defensive catalysts, at least based on the move the Flyers made during the weekend. Couturier was placed on injured reserve. The move can date back to Jan. 20, the day before Couturier was scratched for the first time, but... Continue reading
