One of the benefits of having a father who works for an NHL team is the opportunity to skate on the same ice and use the same facilities as NHL players.
So for Chase Hatcher and John Stevens, walking around the Philadelphia Flyers' practice facility was nothing new. It was a place they became intimately familiar with when their fathers -- former Flyers captain Derian Hatcher and former Flyers coach John Stevens, respectively -- were active with the team.
This week, however, they're not just kids running around playing ball hockey in the hallway or shinny after practice. They're two of the players taking part in the Flyers' development camp, being put through the same tough tests and drills they've seen other prospects go through.
