The Flyers have a lot of goaltending depth in the organization. They are likely to have a young tandem in Kirill Ustimenko and Felix Sandstrom with the Phantoms. But none of the options they have are ready to jump right into the NHL just yet.
So the team will need someone reliable to play behind Carter Hart for the time being. The safe option is just to re-sign Brian Elliott for another year. The two have worked well together and this was Elliott’s first healthy season in over two years. He stepped up when they needed him and has been a loyal part of this organization.
