The Flyers continued wiping out their management and coaches yesterday, and the only question is:
Has the management massacre ended?
The Flyers fired assistant GM Chris Pryor and assistant coach Gord Murphy the morning after they had a two-goal lead in the third period and lost 4-3 to Ottawa.
The dismissals come two days after the Flyers fired general manager Ron Hextall following four seasons on the job.
The Flyers are 10-12-2 and in last place in the Eastern Conference.
Pryor had worked for the Flyers for 19 seasons, first joining them as a scout. He worked his way up through the organization and was promoted to director of player personnel and assistant GM in 2016.
Murphy, who played four seasons with the Flyers, was hired as an assistant coach in 2014.
Flyers president Paul Holmgren (above) said this week that the next general manager will decide the job status of coach Dave Hakstol.
Holmgren said he does not ”anticipate any further personnel moves in the near term.”
