Free agent RW Brett Hextall(#52 above) has been signed to an AHL contract with the Phantoms for this upcoming season. Hextall was born in Philadelphia while his father was working in the city, doing something or other. The 26-year-old Hextall, whose name sounds familiar but I really can’t place why, played the last three season for the Portland Pirates where he had his best season last year, notching 11 goals, 12 assists, and 83 penalty minutes in 50 games. With the Phantoms, Hextall will play under Terry Murray, who coincidentally coached a different guy named Hextall with the Flyers from 1994 to 1997. That’s probably something he can discuss with his new coach as a way to break the awkwardness. Once a Flyer, always a Flyer.

      Yeah, you’d think after all this time…….oh wait.

      If you had a clue about hockey, you’d realize a) he’s cap-strapped, b) there’s such a thing as addition by subtraction, and c) this is a multi-year building process. Hold off making judgements until he has a body of work. Oh, that’s right, he helped build a multi-cup winner in L.A.

      He’s done nothing to improve the team because the flyers have zero cap flexibility and no one wants half the players on the roster. Stop posting stupid comments.

    Uncool nepotism Ron.

    It’s an AHL-only deal, and he’s exactly the type of player the Phantoms are lacking. Plus, I’d bet that it’ll be harder for him to make the big club because his name IS Hextall.
