Flyers fire Ron Hextall

What a change of events. In a shocking move, the Philadelphia Flyers have relieved General Manager Ron Hextall of his duties.

Here is the official word from the Flyers:

“The Flyers organization has decided to relieve Ron Hextall of his duties as Executive Vice President and General Manager. We thank Ron for his many significant contributions, but it has become clear that we no longer share the same philosophical approach concerning the direction of the team. In light of these differences, we feel it’s in the organization’s best interests to make a change, effective immediately. I have already begun a process to identify and select our next General Manager, which we hope to complete as soon as possible.”

There will be a press conference at 11am. Changes are coming, folks.
