Carchidi: Flyers’ John Tortorella Gets Props for Developing Youth



Sam Ersson, Philadelphia Flyers
Goalie Samuel Ersson will make the Flyers' next road trip. He has not played in a regular-season NHL game.

Give new Philadelphia Flyers coach John Tortorella credit for recognizing Travis Konecny’s abilities and putting him on the penalty kill.

And give the 64-year-old coach props for the development of several young players.

That’s a good sign for the future because the Flyers will probably have a fire sale before the March 3 trade deadline and add prospects and draft picks.

At least that’s the way it should go.
