The NHL trade deadline was one of the most talked about deadlines in years with the amount of moves being made around the league. The Flyers made three moves, which disappointed a lot of Flyers fans as James Van Riemsdyke did NOT get traded.

With the Flyers are 23-28-11 giving them 57 points only ahead of the Blue Jackets in the Metropolitan. With the Boston Bruins being the fastest team in the NHL to hit over 100 points in 61 games it’s safe to say the Metro is highly competitive this season.

Previously stated there were major trades in the NHL as Patrick Kane was traded from Chicago to the Rangers; Timo Meier from San Jose to New Jersey; and Dmitry Orlov from Washington to Boston. With the three moves made it looks like the off season will be more eventful; but here are the Flyers’ three moves.

  • Isaac Ratcliffe To Nashville

    Isaac Ratcliffe was a player the Flyers were developing. He played 162 games with the Phantoms for five seasons and in the 2021-2022 played 10 games for the Flyers. The 24 year old forward .managed to get three assists and one game winning goal while he was with the Flyers. Ratcliffe was traded to Nashville for future considerations.

  • Zack MacEwen To Los Angels

    Zach MacEwen has been with the Flyers for two seasons. The Flyers claimed MacEwen from the Canucks back in 2021.The 26 year old  accumulated 18 points in 121 games. MacEwen was known to be the enforcer on ice and get the momentum going when the game was too calm.

    In return the Flyers are receiving Brendan Lemieux and a 2024 fifth-round daft pick. Lemieux has accumulated 63 points in his 257 games through six seasons. Just like MacEwem; Lemieux is an enforcer as well. In the 2019-2020 season he was with the Rangers and is friendly with Tony DeAngelo, Flyers defenseman. .

  • Patrick Brown To Ottawa

    Joining Claude Giroux and the Senators is forward Patrick Brown. The 30 year old forward rallied 7 points throughout his 43 games this season. The Flyers claimed Brown off of waivers from Vegas in 2021. In return for Brown the Flyers are receiving a 2023 sixth-round draft pick. .
