The NHL Trade deadline is always an interesting period. Fireworks and rumors headline the chaotic weeks leading up to that fateful clock-strike, but the Flyers opted to go with a more subtle approach.

We’re only a few short games into his tenure with the Flyers, but Grant is already showing the world exactly why the front office pursued his services.
