Another day, another candidate in the mix to become the next Philadelphia Flyers general manager.
The Flyers have received permission to speak with Dave Nonis about their opening, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. Nonis is currently a consultant with the Anaheim Ducks and previously served as GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks.
Nonis was promoted to Maple Leafs GM in 2013 and oversaw one playoff appearance in three seasons. His notable moves included long-term extensions for Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf, plus the free-agent signing of David Clarkson. Nonis was fired following the 2014-15 campaign.
In addition to Nonis, the Flyers are also reportedly interviewing Buffalo Sabres assistant GM Steve Greeley, former Carolina Hurricanes GM Ron Francis, Columbus Blue Jackets assistant GM Bill Zito, and ex-Minnesota Wild GM Chuck Fletcher, who is now a senior advisor with the New Jersey Devils.
The Flyers are in search of a new GM following Ron Hextall's firing Monday.
