Keith Jones And Daniel Briere have officially been named as the new Flyers front office.
Today (5.11.23) the Flyers announced that Keith Jones has been selected as President of Hockey Operations and Daniel Briere will be the General Manager.
Briere had been acting as interim General Manager when the team ousted Chuck Fletcher in March of this year.
Keith Jones is no stranger to the team. As an ex- right wing for the team and broadcaster since 2005, he has seen a lot of Flyers hockey. John Tortorella will remain head coach.
In a statement on the Flyers’ website Keith Jones said, “To be able to lead this team back to the winning tradition that everyone knows it can, and should be, is a true honor and one that I do not take lightly.”
“There is a lot of work to be done, but these last few months have only strengthened my resolve and made me even more eager to rebuild this team and deliver this city a Stanley Cup,” said Briere in a statement.
