Report: Flyers Promote Ron Hextall As GM, Holmgren To Pres.


The Philadelphia Flyers are working on revamping their front office. They have called an 11:30 am press conference to announce promotions.

Tim Pinaccio of reports that the Flyers the announcement will be to promote Paul Holmgren as the team president and Ron Hextall as the new general manager.

This surprising announcement comes on the heels of an announcement that Holmgren was staying as GM and Hextall was moving on up. Perhaps the Flyers were pressed into making the decision due to the rash of GM openings around the league.
