Flyers chairman Ed Snider has recently completed treatment for cancer, sources have told CSN’s John Clark.
The specific form of cancer has not been disclosed, but according to Comcast-Spectacor spokesman Ike Richman, it’s not life threatening. Snider is doing well, and his condition has not affected his ability to run the organization.
Snider was treated and released from Fox Chase Cancer Center.
Since the press conference announcing Ron Hextall as the new GM, there have been some rumblings that Snider was sick, perhaps with some sort of gastro-stomach cancer. He didn’t speak much during that press conference, and he didn’t look particularly well, either. This was why.
We of course wish him the best.
