The Flyers begin their regular season Wednesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Wells Fargo Center.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
