Philadelphia Flyers Announce 23-Man Roster For Opening Night, Place Ristolainen On IR

(Heather Barry Images, LLC)

The Philadelphia Flyers have officially announced their 23-man roster that will be heading into Columbus for their season opening tilt on the 12th of October.

The Flyers first announced that defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen had been placed on IR. Then by connecting the dots over the last few days with the waiver wire purge that the NHL went through, Felix Sandström remained with the big club and will be serving as the third netminder.

With Ristolainen on IR to start the season, that meant that no tough decisions had to be made regarding Tyson Foerster, Bobby Brink, and Emil Andrae – who have all made the opening night roster.

So without further ado, your 2023-24 Philadelphia Flyers:


#89 Cam Atkinson
#10 Bobby Brink
#27 Noah Cates
#14 Sean Couturier
#44 Nicolas Deslauriers
#86 Joel Farabee
#71 Tyson Foerster
#48 Morgan Frost
#19 Garnet Hathaway
#11 Travis Konecny
#21 Scott Laughton
#25 Ryan Poehling
#74 Owen Tippett


#36 Emil Andrae
#6 Travis Sanheim
#24 Nick Seeler
#18 Marc Staal
#26 Sean Walker
#8 Cam York
#5 Egor Zamula


#33 Samuel Ersson
#79 Carter Hart
#32 Felix Sandström


#94 Ryan Ellis
#55 Rasmus Ristolainen

After their road game to start the season against Columbus, the Flyers head north and across the border to face the Ottawa Senators on the 14th, before returning back home to welcome the Vancouver Canucks on the the 17th of October.
