Joel Farabee to miss 3-4 months

Joel Farabee to miss 3-4 months

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via One of the Flyers’ top forwards could potentially miss the start of the season. One of the Flyers’ top forwards is going to be out of commission for a while. Joel Farabee underwent successful disc replacement surgery in his cervical region Friday morning, the Flyers announced. The 22-year-old is expected to recover in 3-4 months. The Flyers begin training camp on September 21, so it’s likely Farabee, at the very least, will miss a significant portion of the team’s first training camp under new head coach John Tortorella.

John Tortorella is basically already planning for life after Chuck Fletcher

John Tortorella is basically already planning for life after Chuck Fletcher

Photo by Norm Hall/NHLI via The heat is on the Flyers’ general manager at the controls of a team that has regressed badly and missed the Stanley Cup playoffs in back-to-back seasons. John Tortorella might be new in terms of being the Philadelphia Flyers’ head coach, but the veteran bench boss knows a thing or two about longevity. Despite a reputation as demanding boss — and former players aren’t shy to back that up, both in support and against Tortorella — his shortest stint behind an NHL bench is one full season with the Vancouver Canucks. That 82-game...

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via In which the gang dives deeper into John Tortorella. Figuratively. It has been a whole week since the Flyers hired John Tortorella, and shockingly enough the gang still has some things to say about him. His coaching style, how he will interact with the players, and what his presence will ultimately mean for the success of next season’s flyers. There’s also a look into the collective mind of the Flyers fan base, and some talk about the Stanley Cup Final, headed to Game 5 on Friday.

Flyers re-sign Felix Sandstrom

Flyers re-sign Felix Sandstrom

Photo by Jonathan Kozub/NHLI via Ivan Fedotov will have some competition for the backup job. The Flyers re-signed goalie Felix Sandstrom to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Thursday. Sandstrom’s contract has an average annual value of $775,000, making him the least expensive goalie currently under contract in the Flyers’ system.

BSH 2022 Community Draft Board, No. 21: Seamus Casey

Photo by RvS.Media/Monika Majer/ Another day, another defenseman. Three years ago, the Flyers took a shot on drafting a high-scoring, excellent in transition defenseman out of the NTDP in Cam York, and while it wasn’t a universally popular move, it’s one that’s looking like it’s paid off for them. And, interestingly, it’s one that there’s a chance to see repeated this year. Seamus Casey, though he had a bit of an up and down draft season in the NTDP, profiles as another slightly undersized, but great puck-moving defenseman with some very good offensive...
