VOORHEES, N.J. — The first Flyers training camp under general manager Chuck Fletcher and head coach Alain Vigneault is nearly upon us.
The team on Tuesday announced the schedule and roster for the 2019 camp, which kicks off Friday.
All camp practices will be held at Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey, and are open to the public, free of charge.
The 2019-20 season is an important one for the Flyers as they look to jump back into contention after missing the playoffs for the fourth time in the last seven years. The team is expecting its offseason additions to supplement the established core and growing group of younger players on the roster (see story).
Will it all translate? Everything gets started Friday.
