The Philadelphia Flyers will launch a new Webisode series, Flight Plan on PhiladelphiaFlyers.com on Tuesday, August 6 at 7 p.m. Flight Plan will give fans a never-before-seen look at the players, coaches and front office staff and a behind-the-scenes glance at the day-to-day hockey operations of the organization as its season moves along.
The pilot episode, titled The War Room will give viewers insider access into the strategies and discussions for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft that took place in June. The episode centers around a meeting 48 hours before the draft. Director of Scouting Chris Pryor leads the discussion with input from General Manager Paul Holmgren and the chief scouts affiliated with the organization to determine the final rankings of the draft eligible players and zero in on which ones would best fit the team’s future needs.
Flight Plan will continue to follow the Flyers throughout the season, catching all the highs and lows and also capturing special off-ice activities, life on the road and in the community, and what it’s like to be professional hockey players and coaches like never seen before.
All episodes will be available for viewing exclusively at PhiladelphiaFlyers.com. The second episode launch date will be announced later this month. Fans can discuss each episode using the hashtag “#FlightPlan” on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
