Flyers extend qualifying offers to 9 RFA’s
Earlier today, the Flyers extended qualifying offers to 9 RFA’s.
Here are the following players the Flyers extended offers to:
- Wade Allison – 24 years old
- Jackson Cates – 24 years old
- Morgan Frost – 23 years old
- Hayden Hodgson – 26 years old
- Linus Hogberg – 23 years old
- Tanner Laczynski – 25 years old
- Zack MacEwen – 26 years old
- Isaac Ratcliffe – 23 years old
- Owen Tippett – 23 years old
I liked what I saw out of Ratcliffe in his 10-game stint with the big club last season—interested to see how he can improve from that and solidify a spot on the big club.
Morgan Frost and Owen Tippett had a lot of chemistry during the last stretch of the season on a line with Noah Cates. All three players are 23 years old and looking to form a “kids line” in camp come September.
The Flyers didn’t qualify 3 players:
- Matthew Strome – 23 years old
- Maksim Sushko – 23 years old
- Kirill Ustimenko – 23 years old
Strome and Sushko are two players that really couldn’t find their footing within the organization. Strome had skating concerns coming out of his draft year that didn’t really improve. Sushko had some stretches of solid play with the Phantoms but nothing ever materialized in the NHL.
