from Ed Moran of the Philadelphia News,
There have been rumors all season that Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher would make it back on the ice in time for the playoffs.
And this morning, there he was.
But don’t get ahead. Hatcher is joining the team in a player/coach role and will be traveling with the Flyers through the playoffs.
“Paul [Holmgren, general manager] just asked me to travel with the team yesterday,” Hatcher said. “Obviously I said yes. They want me to be more of a player role than a coaching role and be around the guys, joke around, help them out when I can or whatever.”
