The Philadelphia Flyers are not having the season they hoped for when they brought in John Tortorella to steer the ship in a different direction.

Upper management believed that last season was just a fluke due to injuries and COVID, but here we are a year later and the Flyers are second last in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 10-14-7.

Now it sounds like not only are players beginning to ''quit'' on the ice, but they're quitting the team as well!

This morning during media availability, the Flyers head coach John Tortorella confirmed that one of their players has quit the team and requested that his contract be terminated so he can return home.


That player is 29 year old, 192 game veteran Lukas Sedlak, who they claimed off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche on October 19th of this year.

Lukas Sedlak is no longer with the Flyers for good. He has gone home. It was his decision. John Tortorella didn't want to speak for Sedlak. Said he's a good man, will be missed. Sedlak is going home, to be clear. Tortorella clarified that he talked to him this morning. We might get a chance to talk to Sedlak about his decision.



After being drafted by the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 6th round back in 2011, Sedlak made his NHL debut in 2016, where he would play the next 3 seasons for the Jackets before going over to the KHL and dominating.

He returned this season after signing a contract with the Avalanche, but it looks like he has finally had enough of the NHL.
