NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-New York Islanders at Philadelphia Flyers John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

*Camp opened yesterday and as of today we are only eight days away from the start of the regular season... folks, we are in it. Hockey is back. And Carter Hart? He’s ready to flex on everybody.

*The official start of camp brought with it the news that Nolan Patrick is 100% cleared for contact and reportedly looked quite good during yesterday’s drills. Great news. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So with the start of the season in full swing, let’s take some time to examine the forwards competing for roster spots this week. [BSH]

*The league revealed the times for all of the games yesterday, so now we’ve got the complete schedule. All reasonable times! Bliss! [Flyers]

*Sure everyone is playing a short season, but it’s going to affect the Flyers differently than other teams. Probably. [BSH]

*Charlie on the state of the team, heading into a season in which they’re going to need to prove to us all that they’re Actually Good. [The Athletic]

*Are they good enough to get to the top of the new division? Remains to be seen, sure, but we can guess. [BSH]

*Oh hey remember last season? Nicolas Aube-Kubel was good! [BSH]

*And finally, some of the top-tier prospects are making their way through camp with the big boys, but let’s check in on the rest of the kiddos. It’s been a good week for some. [BSH]
