The Philadelphia Flyers have finally returned to the ice after the NHL All-Star break, and with their return comes yet another set of line combinations.

Owen Tippett has returned to practice and figures to be activated from the injured reserve soon. The Flyers won’t need to make a corresponding roster move since Carter Hart was designated non-roster status over the weekend.

On the flip side, Philadelphia is without Bobby Brink, who is currently plying his trade in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. By the numbers, he will be a big part of this lineup. For the same reason, we’ll have a surprise omission of a player who would otherwise be considered a lineup lock.

The Flyers have been blessed enough to have dealt with very few injuries this season in their forward group. Yes, Noah Cates broke his foot, and Owen Tippett has missed some time with his lower-body injury. Given their success, there’s no reason the Flyers should have only two lines that have played 100 minutes or more together at 5-on-5 this season. In fact, neither of the two lines are still together.

Without further ado, here’s how the Philadelphia Flyers should line up post-All-Star break, based on what has worked (and what hasn’t).
