The Flyers will continue to be heard on the airwaves of Greater Media.
The Flyers have agreed to a multi-year extension, allowing 97.5 The Fanatic to retain the broadcasting rights as the flagship station of the Flyers. Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol joined the station's morning show for the announcement.
In just a little more than four months, Flyers GM Ron Hextall has gone from your average, ordinary general manager to a magician at work.
He traded 40-year-old veteran Kimmo Timonen, who had not played all season and had two months left in his playing career, for Chicago’s second-round pick. He turned Braydon Coburn into a first-round pick, a third-round pick and Radko Gudas in a trade with Tampa Bay. He traded Nick Grossmann to Arizona for Sam Gagner while making Chris Pronger’s contract disappear. And then, he did the impossible, acquiring a third-round pick for Zac Rinaldo.
In the meantime, Hextall also retained forwards Chris VandeVelde and Ryan White by signing them to contract extensions. He extended a qualifying offer to Michael Del Zotto. He used the Flyers first-round pick to snag a stud defenseman in Ivan Provorov. He took the first-round pick from Tampa and the second-round pick from Chicago and moved up to draft Travis Konecny. And he opened free agency by signing Michal Neuvirth.
