BOOLAH, BOOHLAH! FLYERS ADD 23-YEAR-OLD YALE GOALIE ALEX LYON

By Michael Donovan

While they are on the verge of making the playoffs, the Flyers yesterday made a move to shore up their net-minding by:

Signing Yale goaltender Alex Lyon to to an entry-level contract.

He’s been nominated for the Richter Award (honoring the NCAA’s most outstanding goalie) for two straight years, with sparkling save percentage numbers each season.

Will that translate to NHL numbers at some point? At 23, we might not have to wait too long to see if Lyon pans out.
