Finally! Flyers fans get to see some action on the ice showing that training camp for the greatest sport in the world is just around the corner. Hockey is back, and is alive and well throughout the Philadelphia Region.
This is one of the most anticipated hockey seasons in recent memory for the orange and black. Many positional battles will ensue when Training Camp officially opens on Friday. However, first let’s start with some sights, sounds, and interview recaps from day one of Flyers Rookie Camp, with some players that are looking to make the roster in the fall.
This will be Myers last Rookie Camp. He was asked to attend camp to help aide the youth. Myers should and will make the big club in the Fall.
“Take it day-by-day, and we’ll see where it goes from there. I still have to perform, nothing is handed to you,” when referencing the upcoming season.
Farabee will be vying for the third line wing position. He is more than ready, and Farabee was phenomenal on the ice today. Farabee is a natural, and a real pleasure to watch his hockey skills from the press area.
“I’m at 177 now. I’ve been eating all Summer. I feel good. It was a great Summer training with Carsen and Bunny.”
Frost was flat-out really good today for the orange and black. Like Farabee, he will be vying for the third line wing position.
“Yea played a lot of hockey with the playoffs and all. Got to keep the legs fresh. Just have to build on every camp. Gotta take my game to another level. I don’t have an actual weight, but it’s higher than 185. My weight has been going up and down all Summer.”
Scott Gordon on Frost:
“I know it’s only the first day, but I think he played at a more significant pace than he has in past camps.”
Cyr is trying to earn an ELC. He currently plays for the Moncton Wildcats. Boy did he impress with his lightning fast speed, and a blast of a shot.
“The Moncton Wildcats fans are the best. All the support they have given me. It goes beyond words.“
Wylie is on the ELC watch list, like Cyr. He looked good on his first day of camp. Wylie looked very confident on the ice.
