NHL Snap Shots: Hextall Hired, Emery Note, Brodeur at Rookie Camp

The Philadelphia Flyers have hired former goaltender Ron Hextall as their assistant general manager and director of hockey operations according to ESPN.  Hextall had previously worked with the organization he played the majority of his career for, in the capacity of Professional Scout and Director of Professional Player Personnel.

Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that the Philadelphia Flyers got a bargain when they signed goaltender Ray Emery.  Emery, who had a stellar season sharing the net during the regular season with Corey Crawford for the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks in 2012-13,  was inked to a one-year, $1.65 million deal in Philadelphia.

Rich Chere writes at NJ.com that Anthony Brodeur, son of New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur, has begun his quest to follow in his father's NHL footsteps.  The younger Brodeur has been playing with the Devils' prospects at their rookie camp in Newark, NJ this week.  The New Jersey native and Shattuck St. Mary's graduate reportedly stopped every shot faced in a shootout practice.  The 18 year-old Brodeur is set to play with the Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL next season.
