*And just like that, we are done with Flyers hockey for the year. They finished out the season with a nice little weekend of hockey, beating the Blue Jackets on Saturday afternoon and then taking the 'Canes to a shootout Sunday night.

*The Flyers handed out their awards before Saturday's game and somehow Wayne Simmonds didn't win every single one. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of that win of the BJs, here's Charlie's penultimate 10 Things. [BSH]

*And our girl Kate was on hand to take some awesome pictures of the action on Saturday afternoon. [BSH]

*Don't know about you guys, but I'm going to miss Steve Mason. [CSN Philly]

*We've also likely seen the last of Nick Schultz in the orange and black. He's a terrible hockey player but a nice guy, so good luck to him. [Courier-Post]

*And Michael Del Zotto is probably out of here too. Gonna be a really different team next season, folks. [Inquirer]

*Travis Konecny reflects on a rookie season in which he was shit on by his coach way more than he should have been and took it like a champ. [Inquirer]

*My new pal Carter is the second coolest hockey kid I've ever encountered, and here he is interviewing newest Flyer Mike Vecchione. [CarterHud]

*A local high school student got a chance to hang out in the Flyers' broadcast booth and that's pretty cool. [Good Night Good Hockey]

*When the news is slow the Flyers beats write about goaltending. [Inquirer]

*This is an excellent read from the Pens long-time broadcaster, who always sat next to Jaromir Jagr on the team bus. [The Players' Tribune]

*On the NHL really being jerks about this Olympics thing. [Philly.com]

*And finally, now that it's officially the offseason, we can have some fun. Like this, A Song of Ice and Flyers. [BSH]
