It won't take the Flyers long to see their old friend and captain Mike Richards.
The Flyers play host to Richards and the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday, Oct. 15.
Jeff Carter won't be long forgotten, either. Carter and the Columbus Blue Jackets visit the Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 5.
In the NHL's unbalanced schedule, the Flyers will not visit either Los Angeles or Columbus this season.
New goalie Ilya Bryzgalov will get two cracks at his former team, the Phoenix Coyotes. The Coyotes visit the Flyers on Nov. 17, and the Flyers are at Phoenix on Dec. 3. *
