*Training camp chugs along, and Travis Konecny is, of course, having fun. [Flyers]

*We got some firm start times and broadcast info for the first of the Flyers’ games, coming up in under two week’s time. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In addition to the Jack Adams noms yesterday, we also learned which kids are nominated for the Calder. [ProHockeyTalk]

*College sports programs are, understandably, in a weird place right now. And with all of this unknown stuff, it’ll be interesting to see how the top NCAA talent reacts. [Raw Charge]

*In that vein, we’re continuing our close look at potential Flyers draftees. [BSH]
