*In important news from yesterday, Chris Stewart and our old pal Wayne Simmonds have joined several other players to form a committee to promote diversity in hockey. [BSH]

*Wayne spoke with John Clarke about his experience as a black man playing NHL hockey, and why he wants to work for change. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Hopefully these round-robin games get here fast, eh? These games are going to be more important for some teams than others. [ProHockeyTalk]

*In that vein, we’ve got a series started on how the Flyers have fared against their round-robin opponents. First up: the Boston Bruins. [BSH]

*Players are starting to wonder what it’s going to be like to play in a big, empty arena. [ProHockeyTalk]

*On one of the Flyers oft-overlooked prospects who may end up being a real gem. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Paul Holmgren made an appearance on Hockey Central to talk about his NHL history and the tough job of rebuilding the Flyers. [Sportsnet] (FYI, this is audio content)

*And finally, DGB on where this year’s Covid Cup will rank in the long history of Stanley Cup wins. [The Athletic]
