Konecny Getting “Game Ready” With The Flyers
Travis Konecny was having the best season of his young NHL career when the season came to abrupt end, and now he’s ready to pick up where he left off.
“I was able to skate a couple weeks before I came back here. Then I skated here a little bit before the training camp. Definitely not as much as I would have gotten in during a regular summer. I did the best that I could do for what I was working with,” Konecny said on the first day of the Philadelphia Flyers training camp.
Konecny, who signed a six-year contract extension with the Flyers last season, had 24 goals and 61 points in 66 games for the Flyers as the season halted due to COVID-19. He was Philadelphia’s leading scorer.
Philadelphia will play in the round robin, beginning August 2, to secure their place in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on August 11.
“Right now, I feel good. Health-wise, I am good. As far as on the ice, conditioning needs to get up I was fortunate that I was in a good spot and I was healthy for the whole process. That’s kind of where I’m at. Good to be back,” Konecny said in the Flyers’ news release.
“I think guys were pretty in sync. They know how fast we need to get back into things. We know there’s not that big time period where you know you have that time to get where you need to go. You need to be sharp right away.”
Konecny and the Flyers will play Boston, Washington, and Tampa Bay in their round robin.
