Dave Hakstol Not Talking About His Firing In Philadelphia

from John Boruk of NBCSports Philadelphia,

While the Flyers are thriving under interim head coach Scott Gordon, their old coach still won’t discuss his firing or the events that led up to it on Dec. 17. 

Dave Hakstol arrived in Stockholm as part of an exchange program set up by the NHL Coaches Association, and politely declined to speak on the record about what went down between himself and new Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher.

“I haven't talked about it and I'd rather not do it now either. I haven't talked to anyone in the media about it, and it would be unfair if I did this,” Hakstol said, speaking with Swedish hockey website Hockeysverige.

Unlike former general manager Ron Hextall, who met with reporters shortly after his firing, Hakstol has declined all media requests since he was relieved of his duties over a month and a half ago.
