Philadelphia Flyers Rumors: Forward Becoming Trade Candidate

The Philadelphia Flyers are gearing up to be sellers at the 2023 NHL Trade Deadline. Players like James van Riemsdyk, Kevin Hayes, and Justin Braun are trade candidates because of this, but now a new Flyer has entered the rumor mill – Joel Farabee. 

In a recent piece for Daily Faceoff, NHL insider Frank Seravalli reported that "Farabee's camp voiced their displeasure to the Flyers" about how this season has gone with head coach John Tortorella. Yet, it is also important to note that Seravalli wrote that Farabee has NOT requested a trade at the time of this writing.

Still, Farabee is a player who may benefit from a change of scenery. He is not being utilized properly with the Flyers and clearly does not mesh well with Torts. The 22-year-old winger would certainly get interest around the league if officially made available, so we will need to wait and see if something comes from this.

In 59 games this season, Farabee has nine goals, 26 points, and a minus-3 rating.
