The Philadelphia Flyers will conduct their 2021 Development Camp from August 28 to September 1 at the Flyers Training Center in Voorhees, NJ, according to President and General Manager Chuck Fletcher. Additionally, Fletcher announced the Flyers have hired Rick Bronwell as the team’s head equipment manager.
Bronwell joins the Flyers from the Minnesota Wild, where he has served as an assistant equipment manager since 2010. He also has worked for the San Jose Sharks and previously held equipment manager roles in the American Hockey League and the ECHL, including with the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies. He brings nearly 1,800 professional games of experience to the organization.
The Flyers are holding Development Camp for the first time since 2019.
A total of 29 players are scheduled to attend the camp, ranging from 18-year-olds through first-year professionals in the Flyers organization. The roster includes 20 Flyers draft picks, including three first-round selections and four of the team’s 2021 selections.
A complete on-ice schedule, as well as any potential sessions that may be open to the public, will be released closer to the start of camp. A complete roster can be found here: 2021 Flyers Development Camp Roster.
The Flyers Development Camp roster includes NHL hopefuls such as Wade Allison, Morgan Frost, Tanner Laczynski, Cameron York, and Egor Zamula. Samu Tuomaala, the Flyers’ top pick in this year’s draft (second round, 46th overall) is also listed on the roster. As are last year’s top picks Tyson Foerster and Zayde Wisdom.
The flurry of offseason activity has died down and we’re in the dog days of summer now. Fret not, however, as hockey returns in just a few weeks with Flyers Development Camp starting on August 28th.
