NHL: Philadelphia Flyers Hire Ron Hextall as Assistant GM

Jul 15 2013, 7:11pm CDT | by

The Philadelphia Flyers hired one of its most successful goaltenders ever, Ron Hextall, as assistant general manager and director or hockey operations.

Ron Hextall is returning to the Philadelphia Flyers. 

Hextall, one of the most successful goaltenders in team history, was hired by the Flyers on Monday to be its assistant general manager and director of hockey operations. The Flyers executive whom Hextall will assist, general manager Paul Holmgren, says his experience will prove to be an invaluable asset. 

"Ron has a wealth of experience in the front office in various capacities. He will be a valuable addition to our staff."

A USA Today Sports report written by Dave Isaac says Hextall's new role with the Flyers will begin on August 1. 

Hextall previously worked in Philadelphia's front office from 1999-2006 as a scout and then eventually became the Flyers' director of pro hockey personnel. His front office success reached a peak when he joined the Los Angeles Kings in 2006, becoming their vice president and assistant general manager. He helped guide the Kings to their Stanley Cup championship in 2012. 

CSN Philly's Tim Pannacio and Sarah Baicker report Hextall was just "a distant third" in line to succeed then-GM Bob Clarke when Hextall first served in the Flyers' front office. Holmgren, who eventually took over as general manager, knew Hextall would have to work for another team in order to advance his career

Pannacio and Baicker indicated Hextall's job description in their report which includes improving the Flyers' annual draft. They also quote Holmgren who said Hextall be involved "in everything that's going on, from the minors to scouting to the Flyers."

The 49-year-old Hextall broke into the NHL ranks in 1986 and spent 11 seasons with the Flyers as their goaltender. He played in a total of 489 games for Philadelphia across three different stints with the team (1986-1992, 1994-95 and 1998-99). He posted a record of 240-172-58 and a 2.91 GAA. His 45 playoff wins are the most in team history.

Oct 10 2014 6:29pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

The NHL has hired Chris Pronger to work in the department of player safety, deciding that having the future Hall of Fame defenceman in its office was worth the perceived conflict of interest. Pronger, whose career was ended by post-concussion symptoms almost three years ago, will continue to be on the Philadelphia Flyers’ long-term injured reserve. That was the only option for the team and league because if Pronger retired his cap hit of just under US$5 million woul ...
