The top 25 Flyers prospects under 25

Broad Street Hockey asked me to contribute a list of my top 25 Flyers prospects under the age of 25 back in August.

Hockey Hilarity: #HartnellDownNoMore?

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! As many of you wonderful FlyersFaithful.com readers know, Philadelphia Flyers winger Scott Hartnell is on the verge of coming back into the lineup. It’ll be a huge boost to a team, both on and off the ice, as Hartnell is not only a very likable dude, he’s also fresh off his best year in the NHL and will bring even more balance to the lineup. And with the unfortunate injury …
