LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Matt Read said last week he wanted to remain a Flyer next season, but he wasn't sure whether he would be able to stay.
The Flyers and Read's agent, Neil Sheehy, had been negotiating on an extension for the better part of the summer.
Now, Read can start the season without any fear hanging over his head.
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Claude Giroux is one doctor's signature away from getting back to game action.
Five weeks after tearing four tendons in his right hand in a golfing accident, Giroux was back in battling drills for the first time on Thursday at Herb Brooks Arena.
Giroux, 25, has been skating, shooting, stickhandling and passing for almost a week. He said he has experienced no pain or sensitivity with the surgically-repaired hand. It is possible he is ready to play as soon as Tuesday’s tune-up against New Jersey.
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- The NHL will play six games outdoors in 2013-14, including one in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and the Winter Classic at the Big House in Michigan.
But what does that mean for the following season?
It seems as if a potential meeting between the Flyers and Penguins at the oft-rumored Beaver Stadium in State College isn’t happening anytime soon, according to a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Before even taking the ice at Herb Brooks Arena, the Flyers’ roster has shrunk to 27 players.
The Flyers placed four players on waivers on Thursday, including forwards Ben Holmstrom and Kris Newbury, defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon and goaltender Yann Danis.
The other 29 teams have until noon on Friday to place a claim. Otherwise, all four will be assigned to the AHL’s Adirondack Phantoms, who will open their own training camp just 90 miles south in Glens Falls, N.Y., this week.
One day after earning his first big league contract, the Flyers decided to send first round pick Samuel Morin back to his junior team in Quebec.
Morin, 18, announced on his Twitter account that he will report back to the Quebec Leauge’s Rimouski Oceanic – the same franchise that produced Sidney Crosby. His contract with the Flyers will slide until at least 2014-15.
Hal Gill has played in 1,212 NHL games - including the Stanley Cup playoffs - throughout his career. On the eve of his first season without a contract in 16 years, he isn’t about to change.
And that’s just fine with Flyers coach Peter Laviolette.
“I don’t think I have to show people what I can do,” Gill said after Tuesday night’s exhibition loss to the Rangers. “I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time. I don’t have a new deke or anything that I’m trying to show anyone.
On Monday night, after picking up a dazzling assist in his first taste of NHL action, first round pick Samuel Morin said he needed a contract.
Less than 24 hours later, he got one.
The Flyers signed Morin, their 11th overall pick in June, to a three-year, entry-level contract on Tuesday. He will collect a base salary of $925,000 in each of those three years, with performance-based bonuses that could push him to $1.425 million per season.
