*Everyone enjoy their nice long weekend? Now that the unofficial end of Summer has officially passed, are you feeling ready for some crisp fall air and the welcoming sounds of a hockey rink? We’ve 12 days left ‘til preseason. Enjoy today’s reminder of another guy who was a better Phantoms than he was a Flyer.

*Over the last few days the Flyers have put out some cool video interviews with recent draft picks that are worth a watch. First up, Marcus Westfalt. [Flyers]

*They also profiled Samuel Ersson, one of the Flyers’ Swedish prospects. [Flyers]

*Carter Hart made it onto the top 50 prospects list and had a chat with the NHL network about his ranking. [Flyers]

*It may seem like the Flyers’ goalie situation heading into this season is already settled, but both Carter Hart and Alex Lyon hope to make strong pushes for NHL jobs. [Philly.com]

*Former Flyer Tony Amonte has a lot of good things to say about Jay O’Brien, a kid who seems to have a lot of nice things said about him. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Over the weekend, the big spicy hockey news was that Vegas Golden Knights’ defenseman Nate Schmidt has been suspended for 20 games for testing positive for a banned substance. TWENTY GAMES. And the details are...well, they’re interesting. [ProHockeyTalk]

*These kinds of suspensions don’t happen very often but when they do, the NHL has come down just as hard as they did on Schmidt. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, kick off your short work week with a brand new episode of Flyperbole! BSH Radio is taking Labo(u)r Day week off, so we’ll be back next week. Enjoy! [BSH]
