The 2020-2021 NHL season gets underway on Wednesday, and the Flyers will take part in the opening game, facing their most-hated rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins.
All teams had to announce their initial rosters, and here's what the Flyers 23-man roster will look like on Wednesday.
The team also has six players that will be assigned to the Taxi Squad:
G Alex Lyon
LW Samuel Morin
C Connor Bunnaman
C/LW Andy Andreoff
LW Carsen Twarynski
D Nate Prosser
Players on the taxi squad can be put on the active roster as late as 5 p.m. ET on a game day, giving clubs a better chance to having four lines, three defensive pairings, and two goaltenders even if rosters take a hit because of COVID-19 protocols.
The Flyers will also have $1,372,815 in cap space this season, so there's not much room to work with if they would want to make a blockbuster trade of any sort. As of now though, the Flyers should have a deep enough roster to be in the postseason conversation.
