In Thursday’s edition of Bailey’s Daily, we’ll be talking the latest Philadelphia Flyers news, stories, highlights, and more from the last day.

Flyers News

  • The Philadelphia Flyers named Sean Couturier the 20th captain in franchise history at… rather a random time in the season. What does it mean for the Flyers and their future ahead?
  • With the lack of current organizational depth in net, should the Flyers consider signing goalie Tomas Suchanek? The 20-year-old is currently setting the AHL on fire with the San Diego Gulls.
  • Wednesday’s practice brought some Flyers injury updates on some key names, including Tyson Foerster and Rasmus Ristolainen, whose recovery timelines have already changed.
  • Remember James van Riemsdyk? Well, the former Flyers standout is (very) quietly having an excellent season farther north with the Boston Bruins.
  • The reason for the Flyers’ success lately? None other than Morgan Frost, who has quietly been driving the bus at both ends of the ice for the last five weeks.
  • ICYMI: Alexei Kolosov and his Dinamo Minsk have qualified for the KHL playoffs; he could arrive in Philadelphia by early spring.

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • That shakes things up! A Juuse Saros trade is more likely than some might think, and Nashville Predators general manager Barry Trotz indicated as much.
  • We have our latest rankings of Montreal Canadiens prospects, with some of the organization’s very best holding strong to close out the winter.
  • The Calgary Flames are finally winning, going 3-1-0 on their latest road trip. Seven stats that derive from this trip might come as a big surprise.
  • What is going on with the Detroit Red Wings? Detroit is beginning to establish a concerning trend of devastating consecutive losses under head coach Derek Lalonde.
  • The silver lining on a Chicago Blackhawks season that was destined to be lost almost from the beginning. A prospect not named Connor Bedard – Kevin Korchinski – is taking big steps forward as the season grows longer.
