*The Flyers dropped a bunch of information about training camp yesterday — training camp starts in less that one week — and also dropped a little nugget about Kevin Hayes requiring a rather major surgery! Oh good! [BSH]

*It’s an abdominal surgery which is going to keep him out for a rather long time. [NBC Sports Philly]

*No two ways about it: this really stinks! [Inquirer]

*It certainly will make training camp more interesting, as this is a rather large gaping hole the Flyers need to fill for the opening night lineup. [The Athletic]

*Hayes is just one on a very long list of pretty notable names that will miss the start of this season due to injury. What the heck is going on here?! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Anyway, in a bit of good news, Oskar Lindblom is full-throttle ready to get back on the ice and back to the player he was before his cancer diagnosis. [Inquirer]

*We’ve cracked the top-10 in the 25 Under 25, and the guy to do it was Bobby Brink. [BSH]

*At number 9, a guy we’d all like to see crack the lineup this season, at least for a little bit. [BSH]

*Related, let’s take a look around the Metro Division and see what the center situation for each team looks like. [Canes Country]

*And finally, remember when Ron Hextall traded Zac Rinaldo for a third round pick? In hindsight, the greatest move of his general management career. [ProHockeyTalk]
