48-game schedule coming soon for Flyers

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

The NHL reportedly have a 48-game season that begins on Jan. 19.

The Philadelphia Flyers will return to the ice shortly, as the NHL will begin a 48-game season beginning Jan. 19, according to Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada. Camps may not start before Saturday, and according to Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch, the new schedule will be released in the next couple of days.

The Flyers are coming off a solid season that saw them finish fifth in the Eastern Conference with 103 points. Philadelphia upset the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the playoffs before falling in five games to the New Jersey Devils, who wound up losing to the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Flyers were led by Claude Giroux, who scored 93 points in the regular season and 17 in the postseason.

Philadelphia attempted to make a big splash in the offseason by signing star defenseman Shea Weber to an offer sheet worth $110 million over 14 years. However, the Nashville Predators chose to match the offer. The Flyers did make a couple big trades, sending Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets and James van Riemsdyk to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Veterans Jaromir Jagr and Matt Carle also went elsewhere.
