Hextall to speak with Timonen about rejoining the Flyers
With Kimmo Timonen’s playing days coming to an end in Monday night’s Stanley Cup victory, Philadelphia Flyers’ GM Ron Hextall intends speak with the 40-year-old about possibly rejoining the organization.
“I haven’t talked to him about it,” Hextall told CSN Philly on Tuesday. “That’s one of those things — I don’t believe you talk to players until they’re done. So once he gets back here, we’ll sit down and talk. And we’ll see which direction it goes.”
Timonen appeared in 573 regular season games over parts of seven seasons with the Flyers prior to being dealt to Chicago in February.
When talking about his retirement in March, Timonen hinted he may get into coaching.
