Flyers recall Aube-Kubel and Goulbourne, loan Vorobyev to Phantoms

The Philadelphia Flyers have made another change. Following another terrible loss at home, Ron Hextall announced that the team has recalled forwards Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Tyrell Goulbourne.

The move comes after Dave Hakstol was not happy with Mikhail Vorobyev’s play, ending in him being sent down to Lehigh Valley. The team also placed forward Corban Knight on injured reserve. Aube-Kubel has three goals and four assists for seven points in his first eight games with the Phantoms, while Goulbourne makes his return to the Flyers after being recalled last season. The Flyers need a spark, but we’ll see if they get it. If not, changes could be coming.

  1. Coach Hakstol is running out of time. If the Flyers continue to play without energy or passion much longer, he will be headed back to coaching college hockey.

  2. Hakstol’s biggest mistake is that he tolerates mistakes & lack of effort from veterans and leans on rookies to supply energy and effort. He seems to only rely on the threat of a rookie taking their job to motivate veterans. Very disappointing. Weak move by a weak coach.

  3. Hakstol has shown ability to boost the team’s play during the stretch but sadly has shown shockingly poor judgment in the deployment of troops. He’s overplayed college level players to the team’s detriment, ridden the goalies to burnout status, and is frying Provorov with over 25 mins a game very early in his career. He doesn’t seem to be a very good motivator and is not much of a playoff coach, in fact Berube got better playoff results with a lesser lineup. Time to say good bye to Hakstol, and bring in a more suitable coach. Actually this has been overdue for sometime.

  4. I like the kids coming up,but We use is the one I’d be sending down. It looks like Hakstol has lost the locker room.

  5. this is a nothing move! the leadership of this team needs to change! there is no fire, no heart in our leaders. it has been this way for three, four years now. it needs to change before this lack of passion hits our kids!
