The details are all coming together, folks! We’re staring down the start of a handful of seasons, more details are being ironed out, and almost all of the Flyers’ prospects are set to be back in action very soon. So, we’re here to provide a quick guide to the schedules we have, to help you out with all of your prospect watching needs. Let’s get into it!
Europe and the QMJHL
The Flyers’ prospects playing in Europe and the QMJHL are back in action (though part of the Q is on pause right now), and if you’re wondering about their progress, well, you’re in luck! Craig has you covered in the prospect report.
OHL - February 4
We don’t have a concrete schedule for this league just yet, but they’re shooting to start on February 4. So this means we’ll see Tyson Foerster (Barrie Colts), Zayde Wilson (Kingston Frontenacs), and Mason Millman (Saginaw Spirit) as we’re getting pretty well settled into the new year.
WHL - January 8
The same is true of the WHL, that their schedule has yet to be ironed out, but they’ll be kicking off after New Years as well. It’ll be January 8 for a start date for them, or at least that’s the target, and that will apply to Connor McClennon (Winnipeg Ice) and Roddy Ross (Regina Pats).
Big Ten - November 13
But we do have some complete schedules here! The Big Ten of the NCAA released their schedules last week, and you can find both of the relevant schedules linked below.
Cam York - University of Michigan
Bryce Brodzinski - University of Minnesota
NCHC - December 1
And yet another schedule finalized! The NCHC released their full conference composite schedule yesterday, and we’ll be seeing them start next month.
Bobby Brink - University of Denver
Noah Cates - University of Minnesota-Duluth
Gavin Hain - University of North Dakota
Ronnie Attard - Western Michigan University
ECAC - TBD
There’s not too much concrete information that’s been released just yet in regards to a schedule for the ECAC, really all we know so far this that the Ivy League teams (which is relevant to we Flyers fans, who have our eyes peeled on Yale and Jack St. Ivany) won’t be starting until sometime after January 1.
Hockey East - TBD
No news yet on Hockey East either, so we’re still waiting on an update on Jay O’Brien and Boston University.
AHL - February 5*
There’s not a whole lot of detail yet about the AHL’s plan for this season, but what we do have is the fact that they’re targeting February 5 as the date to start. The Flyers will have a whole host of prospects joining and returning to the team this season, and instead of listing all of them here, you can revisit our very early look at what their roster may look like to start the season.
Yes that’s a shameless plug of an article by Past Maddie. Enjoy.
And before we go, just one more note: as we know, even for the leagues that have a plan right now, everything remains in something of a state of flux, depending on, well, what happens in the world. So if things change, we’ll keep you all updated.
