Murphy, Laperriere, Mullen to remain Flyers assistant coaches


Dave Hakstol will have the same assistant coaches that Craig Berube did.

The Flyers announced this morning that Gord Murphy, Ian Laperriere and Joe Mullen will all be back next season.

The announcement — a surprise to some — comes a day after the Sabres added Terry Murray to Dan Bylsma’s staff. Murray confirmed to the Philadelphia Inquirer that he met with Hakstol to discuss a position with the Flyers.

“We had lunch and did a lot of talking,” Murray said. “I was hoping something good happened from it.”
