*Training Camp Day is upon us, pals. The excitement is palpable. Say hello to the newest Flyers, Jon-Randall Avon! The Flyers gave him an ELC yesterday. [Flyers]

*If you, like many, are saying to yourself, “Whomst?” fear not! Here’s some insight into who this guy is. [NBC Sports Philly]

*This new guy almost certainly won’t figure into the mix, but with all of these preseason injuries, it’ll be interesting to see who steps up to fill those holes. [BSH]

*Sammy took a stab at trying to figure it out. [Inquirer]

*Always an outstanding read, Charlie’s state of the franchise report asks the question: is this a team poised to be Actually Good again? [The Athletic]

*25 Under 25 rundown! One of the newer draftees found himself quite high on this year’s list at number eight. [BSH]

*At seven, everyone’s current favorite rookie, Wade Allison. [BSH]

*And juuuuust short of the top five, promising young ginger defenseman Cam York. [BSH]

*Let’s take a look around the Metro Division’ defense corps, see what we are working with here. [Canes Country]

*And finally, speaking of the Metro, if you’re making a list of the top-15 forwards in it, is Sean Couturier the only Flyer that makes the list? Hmm. [Pensburgh]
