Report: Flyers move Paddock to assistant coach

The Philadelphia Flyers have named John Paddock as an assistant coach for the 2012-13 season, according to a report from Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com.

Paddock had been serving with the Flyers as assistant general manager.

Panaccio writes that Paddock's new role will involve concentrating on the defensive side of the puck and he'll operate from out of the press box rather than behind the bench.

“I’m going to be a sounding board on different things,” Paddock said.

Panaccio writes that the change in Paddock's job title came about over the summer after a conversation with general manager Paul Holmgren and coach Peter Laviolette.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
