RUMOR: The Next Flyers Signing Revealed?

Published September 9, 2023 at 9:50

Former player turned General Manager, Daniel Briere, has kicked off his tenure with the Philadelphia Flyers in a whirlwind of activity. He's made significant moves in the draft and the trade market, creating a buzz of anticipation among fans.

Briere's Upcoming Signing

There's a new report suggesting that Daniel Briere is looking to sign a talented defenseman, Ethan Bear. Bear has faced some setbacks in recent years while playing for Edmonton, Carolina, and Vancouver, mainly due to injuries. These setbacks have hindered his progress as a top-tier defenseman.

Although Bear might not be available at the start of the season due to his recovery from a previous injury, his return to the Flyers' lineup promises to make a big impact.

Competition for Bear

While Bear's addition would unquestionably strengthen the Flyers' defense, he'll have to compete with other players for a spot among the top six defensemen.

Bear will need to outshine competitors like Cam York, Travis Sanheim, Marc Staal, Victor Mete, Emil Andrae, Sean Walker, Rasmus Ristolainen, Helge Grans, and Nick Seeler to secure a regular spot on the roster. This won't be an easy task, especially if he hasn't played for a while. While younger prospects like Andrae and Grans might spend more time in the AHL, the other defensemen present tough competition for Bear.
