No buyout decisions yet
Hayes to visit Philly
The plan is to have Hayes come to Philadelphia to see their facilities and have an in-person meeting.
The Flyers need to know by the draft if he’s going to sign, if not they need to find another option.
Sam Carchidi: Fletcher said that they still have high hopes for center Nolan Patrick, who should slot in as their No. 3 center next year when all said and done. “He’s a mature player in terms of his 200-foot game for a kid that’s just 20 years old.”
Not a lot of action on the Flyers No. 11 pick yet, but that could change
Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Fletcher on their No. 11 pick in the draft: “we’re going to get a really good player,” he said. “But it is a pretty good chip, and in certain scenarios, I would not hesitate to move it if it could really help our team.”
Philadelphia Flyers: Fletcher when asked about the possibility of trading their No. 11 pick: “It’s early. I’ve mentioned to teams that we’re in play but there hasn’t been a big push for the pick yet. If we keep it & stay at 11, we’re going to get a good player…It’s certainly a good chip that if moved, it could help.”
Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: If he’s available at No. 11, one player the Flyers will consider is forward Matthew Boldy.
Flyers assistant GM Brent Flahr:
“He’s a skilled kid, and he’s going to get a lot stronger and his skating is going to come,” Flahr said. “But he’s got very good hands and he can really shoot the puck. He’s got a really good game that everybody is searching for.”
