The St. Louis Blues have hired Craig Berube as an associate coach.
Berube spent two seasons serving as the Philadelphia Flyers head coach, but he was relieved of his duties with the team in April 2015. After that he served as the bench boss with the AHL's Chicago Wolves. Daniel Tkaczuk is also joining the Blues as an assistant coach while David Alexander is taking over as the goalie coach. They're joining assistant coaches Darryl Sydor and Steve Ott and head coach Mike Yeo. Jun 15 - 5:48 PM

Craig Berube has reportedly interviewed for coaching jobs with the Buffalo Sabres and Florida Panthers this off-season.

Despite interviewing for those two openings, TSN's Darren Dreger says he expects Berube to be an associate coach with the St. Louis Blues. Berube spent last year as the head coach of the AHL's Chicago Wolves. He was the head coach with the Philadelphia Flyers from 2013 to 2015.

Craig Berube has been relieved of his duties by the Philadelphia Flyers.

The timing is a bit surprising, if only because when Flyers GM Ron Hextall declined to immediately relieve Berube of his duties it opened the door to the possibility that Hextall was waiting to see what the coaching market would be like before making a move. Instead Hextall fired him mere days after announcing that he would be weighing his options. In his second year with the club, Berube's Flyers failed to make the playoffs. Meanwhile the man he replaced, Peter Laviolette, is coaching Nashville in the first round. Berube finished with a 75-58-28 record overall.

Flyers coach Craig Berube hasn't been fired, but that doesn't mean he won't be this summer.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall wants to take his time before deciding Berube's fate. There's a lot of desirable coaches that might end up being available this summer, not the least of which would be Red Wings bench boss Mike Babcock. If Hextall feels like he can lure Babcock or another high profile coach to Philadelphia, then Berube will probably be let go.

The idle Philadelphia Flyers were officially eliminated from the playoff race on Sunday.

Philadelphia enjoyed a run of five straight postseason appearances from 2008-2012 and reached the Stanley Cup Final during that stretch. However, the Flyers have only made the playoffs once in their last three seasons and haven't won a series since 2012. This was just Craig Berube's second campaign as the Flyers' bench boss, but he might still be relieved of his duties in response to Philadelphia's poor showing.

Craig Berube realizes he might not be back in Philadelphia next season.

"When you don’t make the playoffs, anything can happen," Berube said. "Especially here. We're still fighting to make the playoffs. If that happens, who knows what can happen. It's an organization that has a lot of pride. They want to be in the fight every year." Especially here is the key phrase as the Flyers haven't been known for their patience at the front office level in recent years. Berube is only in his second season as a bench boss and he did lead the Flyers to the postseason last year. That's not a bad track record given that Philadelphia hasn't had a particularly good roster over the last two seasons. With that in mind, it wouldn't be shocking to see Berube stay on for the 2015-16 campaign.

It wouldn't be surprising if Flyers coach Craig Berube was fired once the 2014-15 season is over.

Philadelphia could be headed for their lowest goals-per-game production since 1968-69. The team currently ranks 24th in the league with 2.53 goals-per-game. Philadelphia also sits 12th in the Eastern Conference and 10 points back of the final Wild Card spot. If Berube is let go then GM Ron Hextall could put his own coach in place, as Berube was given his position when Paul Holmgren was in charge.

The Philadelphia Flyers have not lost at home to the Detroit Red Wings since the Stanley Cup Final of 1997.

The Flyers are 9-0-0 since then. The Flyers host the Red Wings today at 1 pm ET so if past history means anything, look for a Philadelphia victory.

The Philadelphia Flyers are 8-1-3 in their last 12 home games.

The Dallas Stars will have the unenviable task of taking down the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. Philadelphia is 19-8-6 at home but they are just 9-18-7 on the road. The Flyers are seven points behind the Boston Bruins for the final Wild Card spot in the East.

Jeff Reese quit as the Philadelphia Flyers goaltending coach on Friday.

There was a rift that apparently started when the Flyers put Steve Mason in goal on February 26 to replace Rob Zepp after Zepp gave up two early goals. Mason was still injured and Reese had been told that Mason would get into the game only if Zepp was injured and could not continue. Mason was the backup because of salary cap issues and the Flyers did not want to call up an emergency goalie. "It was a mutual agreement between both parties," GM Ron Hextall said in the team’s statement. "Jeff was an integral part of our coaching staff for the past six seasons and we wish him well."

The 2015 first-round draft pick that the Philadelphia Flyers are getting as part of the Braydon Coburn trade might not be the Tampa Bay Lightning's.

It almost certainly will be, but in the unlikely event that Tampa Bay somehow fails to make the playoffs and then wins the draft lottery, Philadelphia will receive the New York Rangers' top pick instead. The Lightning got the Rangers' first-round selection as part of the Martin St. Louis trade.

Don't expect the Philadelphia Flyers to be buyers at the trade deadline.

"I believe we can make the playoffs with this team right now and quite frankly, to add a piece right now that's gonna help us … gonna be better than what we have, is gonna be very costly," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "We're not going there." Hextall is taking a long term approach, valuing the team's future over any short-term success. So even though the Flyers are only six points back in the playoff race, they might even end up trading a veteran or two, like defenseman Braydon Coburn.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall put Philadelphia's struggles on the players rather than coach Craig Berube.

It's extremely rare to see a general manager attack his coach and consequently all shows of support have to be met with skepticism. That being said, Hextall did suggest that he's nearing the point where he'll start making roster moves. Philadelphia is 10 points shy of a playoff spot with nearly half of their schedule in the books.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall was aware that he was violating the CBA when he scheduled a flight for his team on Dec. 26, but he said he was doing so at the request of the players.

The Flyers were scheduled to play in Nashville on Dec. 27 and the team wanted to leave early rather than arrive and play on the same day. "We were aware of the rule and certainly accept the league’s decision," Hextall said. "I was approached by the players and after giving it some thought, it was pretty hard not to allow them the best possible chance to win the game, given the fact they have shown the commitment that they want to do something that is best for the hockey club. In the end, we were willing to accept the consequences." Philadelphia received a fine and while the amount wasn't disclosed, it is anywhere between $10,000 and $100,000.

The NHL has fined the Philadelphia Flyers an undisclosed amount for traveling on December 26th.

December 26th is a CBA-mandated holiday. The Flyers played a game in Nashville on December 27th, and were likely just trying to avoid traveling on a game day. It's believed that the Flyers left for Nashville at 8:24 PM EST that evening. The Flyers ended up losing the game by a score of 4-1. Philadelphia has lost five games in a row since that point.
