In Wednesday’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

  • Early on Tuesday morning, it was reported by TSN NHL insider Darren Dreger that the Philadelphia Flyers and Ivan Fedotov had agreed to terms on a contract extension; the final number was just slightly higher.
  • But, did the Flyers get the short end of the stick on the Ivan Fedotov contract? Maybe, but the social media reaction to the news was simply far too overblown for the occasion.
  • In other Flyers news, former Flyers star Jakub Voracek officially announced his retirement from hockey in an interview with CNN Prima News, citing health and a dozen concussions as his motive.
  • After an up-and-down season that featured an injury at the worst time, Flyers All-Star Travis Konecny has reportedly declined to participate in the upcoming IIHF World Championships in May.
  • In case you missed it, the Flyers are expected to allow University of Minnesota standout Bryce Brodzinski to walk in free agency once his signing rights expire in August.
