Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of Flyers trivia! Today is the final day for you to be entered into the follower favorite for September. Friday afternoon we will select this month's winner.
Sam Morin, Shayne Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg, Travis Sanheim and now Ivan Provorov make up a group dubbed the “Fab Five.” These defensemen are the future of Flyers hockey in a coming year. Might be this one, might not.
The Flyers had to prepare for patchwork while also waiting out previous long-term deals that are still in effect.
Ultimately, the team will keep seven defensemen on the roster for six starting spots. Here is what the current group looks like without the Fab Five.
Yevgeni Medvedev, Brayden Schenn, Sam Gagner scored one goal each. Shayne Gostisbehere added two more. Steve Mason made 29 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the New York Rangers 5-3 Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers trimmed their roster on Tuesday, sending three players back to juniors and releasing one more from an amateur tryout.
Nicolas Aubé-Kubel, Samuel Dove-McFalls and Philippe Myers have all been returned to their respective QMJHL clubs (the Val-d'or Foreurs, Saint John Sea Dogs and Rouyn-Noranda Huskies), while Luke Philip was dismissed from his amateur tryout.
