Flyers promote Ron Hextall to GM, Paul Holmgren to president

PHILADELPHIA - Ron Hextall has been promoted to general manager by the Philadelphia Flyers and Paul Holmgren was elevated to president.

Hextall is Philadelphia's all-time winningest goalie and served as assistant GM last year. Holmgren replaced Bob Clarke as GM during the 2006-07 season and led the Flyers to within two games of the Stanley Cup title in 2010.

The Flyers were eliminated by the New York Rangers in seven games in the first round of the playoffs. They haven't won a Cup since 1975.

Hextall previously spent seven seasons as vice-president and assistant GM with the Los Angeles Kings. The 50-year-old Hextall played 13 seasons in the NHL and had two stints covering 11 years with the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
