PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WHTM) – The Philadelphia Flyers have extended a Qualifying Offer to nine players.
Qualifying offers are not open for acceptance until July 13.
The Flyers did not Qualify the following three (3) players: Matthew Strome, Maksim Sushko, and Kirill Ustimenko.
Teams are given the right of first refusal or draft choice compensation should the player sign an offer sheet with another team.
The key Flyer to receive a qualifying offer is Morgan Frost, Philadelphia’s first round pick from the 2017 NHL Draft. Once considered the franchise’s top prospects, Frost has just seven goals in 77 games, five of which came last season in his first full year with Philadelphia.
Tippett was acquired from the Florida Panthers during the 2022 trade deadline in exchange for longtime captain Claude Giroux. In 21 games Tippett had four goals and three assists for Philadelphia.
MacEwen established himself as an enforcer for the Flyers last season, racking up 110 penalty minutes in 75 games with nine points.
