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

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
