RALEIGH, N.C. - Nick Schultz arrived at training camp in September as an unheralded spare, an insurance policy, should disaster strike the Flyers' blue line. Havoc wreaked quickly, starting when Braydon Coburn went down on Opening Night in Boston. Schultz entered the Flyers' lineup in Game No. 2. Now, after revitalizing his career in the following 36 games, he would like to remain a Flyer next season and beyond. Yesterday marked the first day players skating on 1-year contracts could sign an extension into the 2015-16 season, a new wrinkle in the NHL's 2013 collective bargaining agreement.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - General manager Ron Hextall issued a stern warning hours before Monday night's clash with the Arizona Coyotes. The Flyers were finally beginning to work their way back east on this seasonlong, eight-game odyssey that coach Craig Berube said would define his team as playoff worthy or not. They went 3-1 in the first half, easily the toughest part of the trip. Four games against four bottom-feeding teams with losing records were all that separated the Flyers from a home-heavy January.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Ron Hextall isn't taking the bait. Even winning all three games to finish out this seasonlong, eight-game odyssey would not cause him to change course - despite a few mood-altering wins along the way. Hextall knows the inconsistent Flyers need reshaping. That's why the general manager said this week he would be open to a trade if a meaningful opportunity presented itself. "If we can help our team in any way, we'll do it," Hextall said. "You can't be in my position and stop because you like the way things are going.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The challenge, Steve Mason said, was not dropping into his butterfly stance or flopping all over the crease to stop pucks. Rather, Mason figured the biggest test for his "upper-body" injury would be doing all of that and then sitting through the Flyers' 3 1/2-hour overnight flight from Nashville to Phoenix. "I thought it was going to tighten up a little bit," Mason said. "But it felt great this morning. " Mason, 26, has been cleared to play tonight against the Coyotes by team doctors.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Flyers goalie Steve Mason will not be sidelined for a long time, general manager Ron Hextall said Tuesday after the team's morning skate. Mason, one of the Flyers' best players this season, has missed the last three games with an apparent back injury. He visited a specialist in Philadelphia on Tuesday, and Hextall was pleased with the results. The GM said Mason will not play Saturday in Nashville but will make the trip with the team. Best-case scenario: He returns to play Monday in Arizona.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Craig Berube thought about the question and paused. His Flyers had just knocked off the reeling Minnesota Wild, 5-2, to sweep the first three games of this season-defining eight-game road slog. As the bags were packed and the Flyers piled onto their Delta chartered flight for a merry ride home, Berube wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea of a 3-day break. "Do you want to skip Christmas? I don't mind," Berube said, laughing. But would his three young kids mind?

ST. PAUL, Minn. - After more than 4 days of examination and a battery of tests, the Flyers are convinced goaltender Steve Mason will not miss a significant amount of time. Mason, who needed to be helped off the ice during practice Friday, is expected to rejoin the team after Christmas when the Flyers' eight-game road slog continues. The truth is the Flyers don't have any sort of concrete answer as to how much time Mason will miss. His situation is fluid and will be based on feel.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Fifty-five weeks ago, the Flyers arrived in the Twin Cities to prep for the Minnesota Wild and a game that ultimately took a back seat to news on the trip. On the morning of that Dec. 2 game, the Flyers issued a press release announcing the abrupt resignation of team president and Comcast-Spectacor chief operating officer Peter Luukko. Luukko's sudden cash-out sent shockwaves through the organization, a seismic event that reshaped the foundation of the front office.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Michael Del Zotto, one of the Flyers' best defensemen earlier in the season, was a healthy scratch for the sixth consecutive game Sunday in Winnipeg. Coach Craig Berube said he doesn't want Del Zotto to get down on himself; last year, he was a healthy scratch at times with the New York Rangers and Nashville. "It's hard. I talked to him a few times," Berube said before the Flyers faced the Jets. "He's worked really hard, though, which is a real good sign. I do worry about it. I've got to try to keep him mentally focused.

WINNIPEG - Michael Del Zotto sounds as if he is nearing his wits end. The Flyers were supposed to be a fresh start for him, a chance to resurrect his once promising career. Now, in a matter of 3 weeks, Del Zotto's season has unraveled to a point it never reached even last season. In November, Del Zotto was heralded as the Flyers' most consistent defenseman. Last night against the Jets, he was benched as a healthy scratch for the eighth time in 10 games. He has played just two games in December.
