The 2023-24 Philadelphia Flyers have begun the “New Era of Orange” in the first long-term rebuild in franchise history. A new leadership group with Comcast Spectacor CEO Dan Hilferty, President Keith Jones, GM Danny Briere, and head coach John Tortorella has inspired a renewed sense of hope at the Wells Fargo Center after a brutal three-year stretch for an organization with a proud history.
Flyers Lineup in 2023-24
John Tortorella stands behind the bench for a group looking to develop young players as the core of the next great team that helps the Orange and Black back into Stanley Cup contention.
Carter Hart and Joel Farabee now have significant NHL experience under their belts at a young age. They will progress into leaders for an organization waiting for stars to emerge.
Owen Tippett, Cam York, and Noah Cates all took major steps forward in 2022-23. The Flyers expect them to continue their development in the NHL in major roles for a rebuilding team in 2023-24.
Veterans Sean Couturier and Cam Atkinson are looking to regain their footing after missing the entire season in 2022-23. Travis Konecny has also risen through the ranks to become a respected veteran in his eighth NHL season. Scott Laughton plays a key role as the only player to wear a letter on his jersey last season.
The New Era of Orange
The Flyers are a longshot to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2023-24. However, the group of rising young players provides an attractive draw at the Wells Fargo Center this year.
The long-term promise of Matvei Michkov and Cutter Gauthier joining these developing young players will encourage the fan base to move past the disaster of the past three years that forced the organization to reexamine itself and move towards a new era.
