The Flyers have found the replacement for television analyst Bill Clement during the Winter Olympics. The Daily News has learned that former Flyers winger Gary Dornhoefer will be their TV analyst for nine games during February while Clement is working as an Olympic hockey analyst for the TNT cable network and for CBS Radio. Dornhoefer, a valuable right winger on the Flyers' 1974 and '75 Stanley Cup champions, will work with play-by-play man Marc Zumoff. Zumoff will be filling in for Mike Emrick, who will be on loan to CBS-TV as hockey play-by-play man during the Olympics.

Flyers play-by-play announcer Jim Jackson will make the move from radio to television next season, the team said yesterday. Jackson, 32, will succeed Gene Hart, who was reassigned last week after serving for 28 years as the television play-by-play announcer. The Flyers said Jackson's replacement as the play-by-play announcer on radio would be named within a few weeks. "It was an easy decision for me to make," said Jackson, who served as the Flyers' radio play-by-play announcer for the last two seasons.

Fifty years ago Tuesday, Ed Snider, Jerry Wolman and others brought an NHL expansion team to Philadelphia. The Snider-Wolman relationship didn't last long. The Flyers? Their relationship with fans grew as they became one of the league's elite franchises. You could look it up. Since their first season in 1967-68 - a year after the franchise was awarded - the Flyers have a 1,877-1,304-588 record, a winning percentage of .576. Only the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins have a better winning percentage in that span (both at .601)

Ken Hitchcock called it the new Gordie Howe hat trick. There were 12 seconds left in Tuesday's 2-1 Flyers win over the New Jersey Devils. John Madden, who had won 6 of 7 face-offs with the Flyers' Peter Forsberg, was lining up against him for another. "Peter is playing against one of the best face-off guys in the world," the Flyers' coach said. But on this draw in front of the Flyers' net, Forsberg won. The puck squirted toward the left boards. Forsberg made a mad dash, got the puck and cleared it out of the zone.

Cheer up, Flyers fans. Flyers games will be back on the tube when the long- delayed NHL season begins. The NHL is expected to announce a slashed, 48-game schedule today. PRISM will carry all Flyers home games. Road games will be on Channel 17, PRISM or SportsChannel. The NHL shutdown and the major league baseball players strike that abruptly halted the 1994 season last August has not been good for PRISM's business. PRISM never reveals its number of lost subscribers. The response to such inquiries is a reminder that 80 percent of PRISM's programming is movies and other entertainment.

Flyers fans without cable television should start bracing themselves for fewer games. The Flyers' contract with WPHL-TV (Channel 17) expired after this NHL season. Both sides are talking about a new contract, but with Channel 17's WB network programming commitments increasing Sundays through Wednesdays, it is more difficult for the station to carry Flyers games. Ron Ryan, the Flyers' chief operating officer, said yesterday that the team has been pleased with its relationship with Channel 17 since the 1991-92 season.

Anyone saying "Yo, Steve" in the Flyers' radio booth this season will get a dual response. Holdover analyst Steve Coates will be working with new play-by-play man Steve Carroll. Carroll yesterday was named as Jim Jackson's radio successor. Jackson has moved to Flyers television, where he will join veteran analyst Gary Dornhoefer. Jackson replaces longtime Flyers voice Gene Hart, who's now involved in public and community relations for the team. For the past five years, Carroll, 40, broadcast the Nashville Sounds, the Triple A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox in the American Association.
