NEW FLYERS coach Dave Hakstol has yet to fill out his staff. The logical supposition, given Hakstol's college roots, is that at least one member of the staff will be an NHL veteran, possibly with head coaching experience. Phantoms coach Terry Murray, went the speculation, would have fit perfectly, given his head coaching experience with the Capitals, Flyers, Panthers and Kings. But Murray is going to Buffalo instead, joining new coach Dan Bylsma's staff. Buffalo's general manager is Tim Murray, Terry's nephew.

For the second time in four years, the Flyers have hired Terry Murray. Florida Panthers president Bill Torrey fired Murray as head coach along with his brother Bryan, the general manager, in December. Yesterday, Terry Murray returned to the Flyers as a temporary scout. "For now, this is just something till the end of the season," said assistant general manager Paul Holmgren, who runs the scouting department. "He's still under contract to Florida for next year. " Holmgren said Murray, 50, will scout the American Hockey League and NHL games in the New England area.

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms didn't make the playoffs this season, but coach Terry Murray gave positive reviews on several of his players - especially defensemen Brandon Manning and Shayne Gostisbehere. Gostisbehere, 22, missed most of the season because of knee surgery. "But in the big picture, when you look back 10 years from now, you might say Gostisbehere's injury was a real positive in the sense he became a player who really paid attention to the off-ice part of it and became a bigger, stronger player," Murray said Tuesday, one day after he and general manager Ron Hextall had individual exit interviews with the Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL farm team.

Terry Murray will join his brother in working to turn around the Florida Panthers, agreeing to terms yesterday to become the NHL franchise's fourth head coach. Murray, fired after leading the Flyers to the 1997 Stanley Cup finals, will be introduced today during a news conference, Panthers spokesman Mike Hanson said. Panthers general manager Bryan Murray coached the final 59 games last season after firing Doug MacLean for the Panthers' 7-12-4 start. Florida finished with a 24-43-15 record, the second-worst in the NHL. That came just two years after the Panthers reached the Stanley Cup finals.

There was a long pause on the telephone when Washington Capitals general manager David Poile offered the job of head coach of Terry Murray. That might have had something to do with whom Murray was being asked to replace. Earlier yesterday, Poile had fired Bryan Murray, Terry's brother. "I'm sure he was hoping for a better time or better circumstances for when he was going to get the job," Poile said. "But he said to me, 'This is what I've been preparing my hockey career for and yes, I'll accept the job.' " Bryan Murray, one of the most successful coaches in the NHL in the 1980s, lost his job in the wake of an eight-game losing streak that has left the Caps last in the Patrick Division, with an 18-24-4 record.

PITTSBURGH — Former Kings coach Terry Murray, who was fired by Los Angeles on Dec. 12, is close to beginning an unprecedented fifth stint with the Flyers' organization. As first reported by RDS' Renaud Lavoie, Murray could become the next head coach of the Adirondack Phantoms. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed the two sides have spoken about a job. Apparently, a position as the Phantoms' top coach is not the only offer on the table. "We have spoken," Holmgren said.

After four years as a Flyers assistant coach, Keith Acton has traded in the orange and black for Rangers blue. Acton joined the New York club yesterday as an assistant coach, which reunites him with Rangers head coach John Muckler and assistant Craig MacTavish. Acton's departure is the final breakup of former Flyers coach Terry Murray's staff from a year ago. Dave Brown left the Flyers organization in March, turning down a job in the scouting department after he was demoted when Roger Neilson arrived to replace head coach Wayne Cashman.

If the Flyers, coming off a year in which they reached the Eastern Conference finals, are going to make strides this season, they must answer several questions. Here are five of them: Can Simon Gagne make a successful recovery from a concussion that limited him to 25 games last season? Based on his play late in the preseason, all indications point to Gagne's regaining his goal-scoring form. If he does, the Flyers could be headed for a special season. Gagne is on a potentially dynamic line that includes Mike Richards and Danny Briere.

Seven fuzzy-faced junior-league players, a handful of minor-leaguers and three guest stars joined an eager quartet of Flyers yesterday as new coach Terry Murray kicked off the NHL preseason with his first day of mini-camp. In attendance at the Coliseum in Voorhees on day one of the two-week session were seven draft picks slated to return to their junior teams at the end of the month. That means they will not be at Murray's first official training camp since he replaced Terry Simpson as the Flyers' coach in June.

Citing "an accumulation of problems" that could not be resolved, Flyers general manager Bob Clarke fired coach Terry Murray yesterday. Clarke said he made the decision late Thursday after meeting with Murray for more than two hours earlier in the day. Murray was informed of the decision early yesterday morning at the club's practice center in Voorhees. "This is the worst thing I have ever had to do as a manager," Clarke said. "I just felt the problems we had weren't going to go away.

The Flyers have hired a coach with NHL experience to guide the American Hockey League's Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The team announced Monday that Scott Gordon, 52, will coach the Phantoms, replacing Terry Murray, who is now an assistant with the Buffalo Sabres. Gordon is looking forward to working with the team's prospects. "It's really exciting," Gordon said in a conference call with reporters. He served as an assistant for three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2011-14.

The days of dump-it-in hockey are over. Speed rules. Which is why the Flyers are excited about two forwards making their first appearance at the team's development camp: Danick Martel and Travis Konecny. The solidly built Martel is all of 5-foot-8 and 162 pounds. He makes up for his lack of size with his quickness and grittiness. Just ask the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League opponents who watched him collect 102 points, including 48 goals, in 64 games last season. "I'm 5-8 off the ice, but on the ice, I'm not," he said Tuesday.

WHEN THE season ended and the Flyers had a vacancy at head coach, general manager Ron Hextall took a ride to the Lehigh Valley to meet with Phantoms coach Terry Murray. The meeting in Allentown wasn't to let Murray know he was being considered as a replacement to Craig Berube, but rather the opposite. Hextall told Murray, a former player and head coach in the organization, who also worked with Hextall in Los Angeles, he was not being tabbed as a candidate. Murray didn't expect to be, but he told Hextall he wanted to finish his career in the NHL. So once Hextall brought in Dave Hakstol from the University of North Dakota to be the Flyers' next head coach, many thought Murray would be the perfect fit to work alongside a guy with zero NHL coaching experience.

BUFFALO - From Bill Barber to John Stevens to Terry Murray, just one man without a tie as a Flyers player has been head coach of the Phantoms in the 19 years since the Flyers purchased managing control of their American Hockey League affiliate. That may change this summer. The Flyers interviewed Kris Knoblauch, who coached Connor McDavid and the Erie Otters to the Ontario Hockey League championship series this spring, during the NHL combine in Buffalo last week, according to sources.

TODAY IS Day 4 of the Flyers' head coaching vacancy. That in itself is a rarity in franchise history - a rather long length of time in between coaches for a team with an innately itchy trigger finger. In fact, six of the seven Flyers coaches hired since 1998 replaced their predecessor on the same day. Ken Hitchcock, who succeeded Jack Adams Trophy winner Bill Barber on May 14, 2002, was the lone exception. Eleven of the 17 coaches hired in franchise history after original boss Keith Allen were same-day replacements.

AS MUCH AS just about anyone, Phantoms coach Terry Murray has a Flyers logo tattooed on his butt. The Flyers' coach in the 1997 Stanley Cup final enjoyed stops in Florida, Washington and Los Angeles, but he's always made it back to his first home as a player - as a scout, assistant coach or minor league mentor. Murray should be forgiven if he is rooting for the Flyers to lose today in their meaningless season finale. That would mean his older brother, Bryan, can officially resume the chase of that elusive first Stanley Cup next week.

Defensemen Travis Sanheim and Shayne Gostisbehere showed exceptional poise with the puck. Sam Morin, another defenseman, threw his weight around and decisively won a fight, and goalie Anthony Stolarz, in his first game since offseason hip surgery, and Martin Ouellette were solid in the nets. Goals by Petr Straka and Nikolas Aube-Kubel also highlighted the Flyers' 3-0 win over the Washington Capitals in a rookie game Tuesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. With a standing-room-only crowd of more than 1,000 watching, rookie camp ended on a positive note for the future Flyers.

Center Nick Cousins, one of the Flyers' top offensive prospects, has struggled mightily in his first season with the AHL Adirondack Phantoms. The Flyers believe it's simply a matter of growing pains. "We're still high on Nick," said Chris Pryor, the Flyers' director of scouting. "It's all a part of the learning process. " One year removed from a 103-point season with his junior team in the Ontario Hockey League, Cousins has just 14 points in 51 games with the Phantoms entering Saturday, and had one goal in his last 26 games.
