Ed Snider will miss home opener due to medical therapy, reportedly "doing great"


A Flyers spokesman announced at practice this morning that team chairman Ed Snider would miss the home opener due to recent medical therapy in California. The spokesman stated that Snider was healthy and simply was staying on the west coast as a precaution. Despite turning 82 years old last January, Snider is still an active member of the hockey community and is known as a very hands-on chairman. We wish him a speedy recovery from his therapy.
