2014-15 Flyers Preview: The New Guys

The Philadelphia Flyers head into the 2014-15 season with virtually the same roster that lost in seven games to the New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division Semifinals.

With that said, there have been a couple new additions to the Flyers’ proverbial puzzle.

Flyers send Morin back to juniors; Trim roster to 22

It looks like Flyers fans will have to wait to see Samuel Morin on a regular basis.

General manager Ron Hextall stuck with his patience plan, sending the 19-year-old defenseman prospect back to Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Friday. The Flyers also trimmed their roster down to 22 players, waiving three players in hopes they land in Lehigh Valley.

Goaltender Robb Zepp and forwards Jay Rosehill and Chris VandeVelde were all placed on waivers on Friday. They join three players sent to Lehigh on Wednesday.

Flyers send Gostisbehere, Laughton to Lehigh Valley; Morin still in Philly

The Philadelphia Flyers need to get the active roster to 23 by the start of the season.

They're at 26.

The Flyers got to that number when they sent center Scott Laughton and defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere to Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Both, who were top candidates to start the season with the Flyers, will start in Lehigh.

The Flyers also waived veteran Zack Stortini. If he isn't picked up, he will join Laughton and Gostisbehere in Lehigh.
