This week's Future Flyers Report features a call-up for an up-and-coming prospect, as well as a three-point weekend for a touted draft pick and a split weekend for the Reading Royals. Take a comprehensive look at how the Flyers of Tomorrow fared after the jump.
All 30 of the NHL's general managers are set to begin their annual meetings on Monday in Boca Raton, Fla. Among the topics of discussion: goalie rules (namely video review of goaltender interference, and changes to emergency goalie protocols), and changes to overtime -- which could reduce the amount of shootouts.
For the second time in a three-game span, the Flyers found themselves on the wrong end of a shootout result.
This time, they fell to the Ottawa Senators, after a tight-checking matchup that saw both teams score just one goal apiece in regulation (see recap). As a result, the Orange and Black fall to 3-9 this season in the glorified skills competition.
The Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators played a tight checking game. Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Jakub Voracek each scored in regulation. Both Andrew Hammond and Ray Emery were solid in net. In the end, one team had to win and Bobby Ryan scored the shootout winner as the Senators beat the Flyers 2-1 on Sunday.
