Gooooood morning and good hockey, Flyers fans...loose pucks up front, links to follow, and puck drop from Long Island at 7 p.m. tonight — but more on that later right here on this very website.
Sure looks as though recent call up Tanner Laczynski will be making his NHL debut sooner rather than later...the former Ohio State star was nearly a point per-game player in college and potted 10 points in 14 games for the Phantoms this season prior to his call up...Flyers coach Alain Vigneault hasn’t said the former Buckeye is in for sure, but did note that Nolan Patrick and Oskar Lindblom will both re-enter the lineup against the Islanders...Friday’s line combos below...
From what it looks like at Flyers practice:— Jordan Hall (@JHallNBCS) April 2, 2021
Lindblom is practicing but Flyers may want to get him more time.
