Flyers Promote Hextall to GM

Former goalie replaces Paul Holmgren, who moves upstairs.

CSN Philly is reporting former goalie Ron Hextall is the new Flyers GM, while Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is becoming the team president. Hextall was the team’s goalie during much of the 1980s and 1990s; Holmgren had held the GM slot since 2006. Chairman Ed Snider said that Holmgren will be “working on the business side more” as well as “giving us depth” in personnel decisions.
