Ron Hextall said at his end-of-the-season press conference in late April that the Flyers were not planning to bring back their unrestricted free agents, with the exception of Valtteri Filppula, which the general manager did not rule out.
So some now-former Flyers were on the move Sunday as NHL free agency opened at noon.
Here's the latest on where which players have landed.
The defenseman, who went undrafted and played parts of six seasons with the Flyers, signed a two-year deal with the Blackhawks. The contract has an annual average value of $2.25 million, according to TSN's Frank Seravalli.

"Brandon Manning was a good player for us," Hextall said Sunday. "He was an absolute warrior and a character guy, and I was actually very happy to see him sign that two-year deal in Chicago."
Over time, Manning became a much-maligned player among the fan base, especially when Dave Hakstol would elect to play him over Travis Sanheim and Robert Hagg. Still, Manning never shied away from a fight, was classy off the ice and turned himself into an NHL player.
He thanked the fans, city and organization on Twitter earlier in the day.
Hextall on Sunday confirmed the Flyers were moving on from Filppula, who ended up signing with the Islanders, according to Arthur Staple of The Athletic.
Filppula was acquired in the Mark Streit deal at the 2017 trade deadline. The veteran center turned 34 in March and had 11 goals and 22 assists over 81 games during 2017-18.

After the Flyers' season ended, it was clear Mrazek wasn't coming back to Philly. Hextall didn't qualify the goalie and he became an unrestricted free agent.
Now Mrazek is headed to the Hurricanes on a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
Mrazek will share the net with Scott Darling. Longtime 'Canes goalie Cam Ward moved on and signed with the Blackhawks.
