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

Flyers News

  • Making his professional debut for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in the AHL, Philadelphia Flyers prospect Hunter McDonald suffered an undisclosed injury early in the first period and did not return.
  • With their massive win over Boston on Saturday afternoon, the Flyers took a massive step forward in their pursuit of a postseason berth this season.
  • Flyers prospect and London Knights forward Denver Barkey put the exclamation point on an incredible individual season, reaching 100 points on the year.
  • In case you missed it, Hunter McDonald is with Lehigh Valley by way of a tryout agreement; he has not signed his ELC with the Flyers yet.
  • Flyers defenseman Ronnie Attard recently graduated from Lehigh Valley, but not because of trades or injuries. Rather, he earned his opportunity in the eyes of team management.
