Welcome Back to another Flyers Hockey Season! By the time you read this, training camp for the 2014-2015 season will be underway and the first home pre-season game will be in the books. I am looking forward to the home opener and all of the Hall of Fame nights this season.
First off, I want to wish Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen best wishes for a complete recovery from the blood clots he is suffering from. Our wish is to see him healthy most importantly and hopefully able to play later in the season. Secondly, I am looking forward to new General Manager Ron Hextall’s first season in his new position with the Flyers. We as fans need to be patient and allow Ron to work his magic.
At the last officer’s meeting, by a unanimous vote, Lou Milano was voted a lifetime board member after 30 plus years working with the Fan Club. I want to congratulate Lou on a position well deserved. Lou is also our trip czar. Please be sure to read in this issue of “The Puck” the trip list Lou has prepared. Hopefully we will see you all on one or more trips this season. Puck Editor Lois Witulski is always looking for interesting articles for our newsletters. If you go on a trip or visit another arena on your own or even meet your favorite player, please consider writing an article for all to enjoy.
Best Wishes to our Flyers team for a great start to the 2014-2015 season.
Joe Fisher, President
