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

  • Could top prospect Matvei Michkov really join the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer? Well, according to SKA St. Petersburg chairman Alexander Medvedev, it is a possibility, although not one that has been seriously discussed. A decision could be made as early as June.
  • If you ever wondered how or why Ivan Fedotov suddenly joined the Flyers at the end of March, the hulking Russian goaltender finally offered a bit of perspective on his move from Russia to North America.
  • Although it may not end up meaning anything in the long run, Flyers captain Sean Couturier has switched agents and is now represented by Pat Brisson of CAA Sports. Brisson is, however, known for his ability to facilitate trades.
  • And speaking of Fedotov, former NHL All-Star goalie Evgeni Nabokov sympathizes with his fellow countryman, remarking that the Flyers threw Fedotov into “hell” to start his NHL career.
  • In case you missed it, karma came back around for Alexander Ovechkin, who, after mocking the Flyers, was swept in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • Is this the year the Montreal Canadiens finally find that high-end, skilled center that they have been looking for? Berkly Catton is one of the very best options in the 2024 NHL Draft, but there will be competition.
  • We have a Game 6. Despite having their backs against the wall, Alex Carrier and the Nashville Predators survived Vancouver’s heroics thanks to some heroics of their own.
  • Is it time for the Pittsburgh Penguins to just mail it in? Well, maybe, but not just yet. Sidney Crosby gives the Pens pause for one more year, and who knows beyond that.
  • This was inevitable, but we still have to act a little surprised. The Colorado Avalanche just knocked the Winnipeg Jets off in only five games and looked destined for another deep playoff run.
