Flyers will be aggressive in trying to add ahead of NHL Trade Deadline


The Philadelphia Flyers are initiating conversations with other teams ahead of the NHL Trade Deadline on April 12.

“We’re certainly not looking at selling right now,” general manager Chuck Fletcher said Wednesday. “I would say to you in my calls with managers around the League, first of all, I’ve received very few calls. It’s been really quiet in terms of receiving calls.

“I’ve made many. I’ve been much more aggressive, I think, than a lot of people, just looking at different options. But there doesn’t seem to be a lot of teams out there willing to take on dollars and term at this point in time. There seem to be more teams looking to move some pieces than take on pieces for various reasons.”

The Flyers are 4-8-1 in their past 13 games. They have allowed at least three goals in 12 of those 13 games, and at least four goals in nine of them. Their .346 points percentage in March is 28th in the NHL and their average of 4.38 goals against per game is 31st.
