Chuck Fletcher, general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, joins Deb Placey on the latest edition of NHL Executive Suite, available on NHL.com and multiple iOS and Android podcast apps.
Fletcher begins the conversation by discussing his days at Harvard University and how he learned to love hockey growing up in Atlanta, then talks about his father, Cliff Fletcher, exposed him to life as an NHL GM at a young age and even shares a story about the one trade he made with his dad.
Fletcher also describes what it was like to work on the Florida Panthers staff after the NHL expanded in 1993, why he thinks coach Alain Vigneault is a great fit in Philadelphia and offers his thoughts on the Flyers roster, including goalie Carter Hart, forward Travis Konecny and center Kevin Hayes.
