3 Flyers on Thin ice Heading Into the All-Star Break

Even though the Philadelphia Flyers have exceeded most expectations this season, these three players still find themselves on thin ice as the NHL All-Star Break looms.

2. Garnet Hathaway, RW

The Flyers attempted to add depth to their bottom two lines when they signed Garnet Hathaway to a two-year, $4.75 million contract in the offseason. While he's never been known to be the best player on his team, there was optimism around the signing after he amassed 13 goals and nine assists while playing 84 games between the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins last season.

Unfortunately, Hathaway hasn't even come close to last year's production. The 32-year-old veteran only has four goals and six points through 48 games, putting him on pace for seven and 10, respectively.

For reference, that'd be his worst performance since he finished with four goals and 13 points in 59 games during the 2017-18 campaign. Even then, that was only his third campaign and he was still on pace for 18 points in an 82-game slate.

If the Flyers truly are sellers, getting rid of Hathaway is a no-brainer. He may be even worse next year, so it makes sense to move him now while he still might have some value to a contender looking to add grit to the bottom of their lineup.
