Flyers Schedule: Mike Richards Return to Philadelphia Highlights Flyers' Week Two

The Philadelphia Flyers look to build on a 2-0 start in the second week of the season. The return of Mike Richards highlights week two.

After a 2-0 start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers look to continue their winning ways against Vancouver and Los Angeles in week two.

The Flyers will finish week two with the emotional homecoming of Mike Richards, who returns to Philadelphia with the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 7:30 p.m. for the first time since being traded from the Flyers. The center scored 23 goals to go along with 43 assists for Philadelphia last season, but was traded to Los Angeles in June in return for Brayden Schenn, Wayne Simmonds and a draft pick. 

The early trade returns have been promising for the Flyers, who have given Simmonds a bigger role than he played in Los Angeles.

"It's certainly different than the role I've had in the past," the 23-year old Simmonds told the Philadelphia Inquirer after scoring a goal in Philadelphia's 3-0 win against New Jersey on Saturday. "I said before training camp - and even during training camp - that I'm just going to try my best to help the team win, and I think I've done a pretty good job to start the season, and I'm going to just try to continue that."

The Flyers, who started 2-0 for just the 14th time in franchise history (according to the Inquirer), resume play Wednesday, Oct. 12 at 7:00 p.m. against the Stanley Cup runner-up Vancouver Canucks (1-0).
