A new season means ‘a new hope’ for Flyers PK unit

A new season of Flyers hockey is upon us, and with that brings some fresh new faces to the helm. Mike Yeo now leads a once stagnant penalty killing unit.

Yeo underwhelmed for the Minnesota Wild, and ST. Louis Blues. However, Yeo has turned a bad Flyers penalty killing unit, into a force to be reckoned with in the pre-season. The hope is to carry this over into the regular season, which opens Friday, October 4 in Prague.

The transformation of this unit throughout the pre-season has been night and day from last season. Yeo has had this unit clicking on all cylinders from day one of training camp, and it has filtered into the pre-season.
