One of the Flyers' most intriguing prospects reported to rookie camp yesterday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees with a mended shoulder and a new frame of mind. Right winger Steve Downie, the Flyers' first-round draft choice in 2005, might not make the roster out of training camp, but he certainly figures in the team's future. The 20-year-old Downie, who had surgery in late April to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, said he was feeling fine physically. In the past, his physical tools were never questioned, but Downie's fiery personality has resulted in several suspensions.

It was snowing heavily at 5:30 that winter morning in Everett, Ontario, when John Downie lost control of his car while driving his son to hockey practice. Steve Downie, age 7, was sitting in the front seat of the car and walked away with nary a scratch on him. His father died at the scene. "It was an unfortunate car accident, but Steven wasn't hurt at all," recalled Ann Downie, his mother. "It said something right there. He always had that passion to play hockey. " Yesterday, the 18-year-old was watching the NHL draft on television in Queensville, Ontario, when he was stunned to hear that the Flyers had selected him at No. 29 in the first round.

After he was a healthy scratch in the previous game, winger Steve Downie returned to the lineup Tuesday against Detroit and was placed on the third line for the first time since Jan. 11. Downie was reunited with Sean Couturier and Matt Read, a highly effective trio for most of December. "I'm looking for him to be an intense hockey player," coach Craig Berube said after Tuesday's morning skate. "The Steve Downie I know wins one-on-one battles in the corner, comes up with loose pucks, is strong on the puck, and has a heavy stick.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Flyers winger Zac Rinaldo received a four-game suspension from the NHL on Monday and will miss the rest of the regular season. Rinaldo was suspended for an illegal check to the head of Buffalo defenseman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of a 5-2 victory Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center. "While we view the four-game suspension to Zac as harsh, we respect the league's decision," general manager Paul Holmgren said. With Rinaldo out of the lineup, coach Craig Berube will reinsert Steve Downie or Tye McGinn in Florida on Tuesday.

STILL TRAILING after his team played its best game of the series, a coach begins to search around this time for an X-factor to insert in his lineup. One such gift could have landed in Craig Berube's lap yesterday. After the Oshawa Generals were ousted from the OHL playoffs on Wednesday, the Flyers recalled first-round pick Scott Laughton yesterday. Laughton, 19, already has five games' NHL experience under his belt with the Flyers from the 2013 lockout-shortened season. Laughton was lauded for his defensive responsibility as an 18-year-old, making the decision tough for the Flyers to send him back to junior hockey.

SCOTT HARTNELL will pay for his stick-swinging incident on Sunday afternoon. Luckily for him, the hit from the NHL's Department of Player Safety will be on his wallet - and not the Flyers' lineup for Game 1 of their first-round series in New York against the Rangers. Hartnell was fined $5,000 yesterday for spearing Hurricanes defenseman Brett Bellemore. He received a 5-minute major on the play and an automatic game misconduct. It was half the maximum fine ($10,000) he could have received.

IT BEGAN with a three-game skid so stale, so uninspiring that Peter Laviolette's head rolled just 6 days into a 195-day slog. From there, with Craig Berube installed, it got worse before it could get better. An ugly 0-3 became 1-7 before it turned into 4-10-1. The Flyers failed to net more than two goals in 14 of their first 15 games. Claude Giroux did not score once in his first 15 contests - before roasting an Edmonton team with a game-winner the day after the Oilers signed free-agent castoff Ilya Bryzgalov.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Scott Hartnell is one of just four Flyers remaining from Steve Downie's first run with the club in 2008. To him, and others, it's been obvious that Downie wasn't himself the last month - or even the better part of this season. Normally outgoing as a practical joker in the dressing room, Downie has been quiet and reserved, bogged down by injuries contributing to a career-worst year. "He's usually a treat to be around, for sure," Hartnell said. "He's had some good days and bad days.

Steve Downie missed his sixth straight game Thursday because of a head injury, but Flyers coach Craig Berube said that when the winger is ready, he wants him back in the lineup. "I think he's close," Berube said before Thursday's key matchup against Columbus. Tye McGinn could soon be the odd man out. "I think he's been fine," Berube said of McGinn. "He's skated well and been involved. " McGinn was on a line Thursday with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds. "That line has been OK," Berube said.

DRENCHED IN sweat, Steve Downie sat in his stall inside the Flyers' empty locker room in St. Louis on Tuesday morning - just staring off into the distance. He had just gone through a grueling pregame skate routine - reserved for the Flyers' scratches - with assistant coach Ian Laperriere, Hal Gill and Steve Mason, and he was exhausted. Yet, he didn't hustle to get his equipment off to get back to the team hotel for lunch. He sat there in all his equipment. Something just didn't look right.

The Flyers will try to avenge one of their ugliest losses of the season Sunday afternoon when they host arguably the NHL's best team, the Boston Bruins. Boston is on a 14-0-1 run and hasn't lost a road game in regulation since Jan. 9, a 4-2 defeat in Los Angeles. The Bruins scored three power-play goals, chased starter Flyers goalie Steve Mason, and rolled to a 6-1 win when the teams met at the Wells Fargo Center on Jan. 25. "Obviously our last game against them wasn't as planned," captain Claude Giroux said.

NEW YORK - While all the Flyers' focus was centered directly on the bright lights of Madison Square Garden last night, wheels were in motion farther upstate in New York to ensure the future of the franchise. In Adirondack, second-round pick Robert Hagg worked with player development coach Kjell Samuelsson in his second practice since arriving from Sweden. The Phantoms also were expecting the arrival yesterday of forward Kevin Goumas, the latest college free agent plucked from what Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren aptly described as "very fertile ground.
