*Big news for Paul Holmgren yesterday as he was named to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, which is pretty neat and, given all he’s done for the franchise, very well deserved. [Flyers]

*Yesterday we read that Kim Dillabaugh has a lot of faith in Martin Jones, and today we are reading that so does the Flyers’ newest front office member Mike O’Connell. Laying it on thick, boys! [NBC Sports Philly]

*While the whole dang team desperately needs a “bounce-back” year after last season’s mess, these five players are really going to need to turn it around if the Flyers are going to turn it around. [BSH]

*Travis Konecny is one of those guys and he is already hard at work at the Flyers’ practice facility, determined to get back to what we expect of him. [Flyers]

*Part two of Charlie’s interview with Brent Flahr focuses on the Flyers’ prospects at defense and goaltending, at least one of whom will be seriously competing for a roster spot at camp in a few weeks. [The Athletic]

*And finally, just in time for your weekend, a brand new episode of Flyperbole! The Flyers’ Hall of Fame nominees make for a fun conversation; please to enjoy. [BSH]
