The Biggest Beauties
January 8, 2018
Perhaps the most vital piece of information about the history of the Flyers is the favorite players from the past and the present. Coaches, family, players, and fans were asked who their favorite player is, and the variety of answers gives us insight as to which players are fan-favorites and why.
Johnny Khalil: Johnny Brask due to the fact that he is fun to play with, and he is a funny guy. He represents the Flyers very well.
Amy Murnan: Rory [Murnan].
Riley Burns-Goetzman: Rory. He’s just a beauty. A beauty is an intangible thing with style and the skill of hockey or other sports. Can’t really explain it.
Rory Murnan: Not including myself, my favorite Flyer would have to be Tommy Anderson, and an up-and-coming favorite might be Caelen Woog.
Tommy Anderson: Myself. That sounds greedy though, let me say someone else… Quinn Ehlen.
Caelen Woog: Probably John Khalil just because he’s the funniest and most entertaining guy on and off the ice, yet he boasts a true passion for the game.
Cole Knickelbine: Danny Jensen [who is a former Flyer who graduated from BSM in 2017] trying to be 5th year Flyer always brings the energy. Great guy to be around on the ice.
Jay Biwer: My favorite all-time Flyer was Mikey Lamb. I played on the first line with him, and he could absolutely light the lamp. I didn’t score a whole lot, but I assisted on most of his goals, and he led the team in goals.
Ryan Anderson: My favorite player of all time would have to be Danny Jenson.
Tyler Anderson: My favorite player of all time was Adam Clark, 2011. My favorite Flyer this year is the new coach Chad Holton.
Theresa Deterding: Would have to be a Deterding.
Al Brask: Favorite player of all time is Ryan Butts in 2010. He was a D1 lax player and an absolute savage. (When Brask was asked about his favorite player this year, ‘I plead the 5th Amendment’ was his response.)
Ken Pauly: A lot of them. Top current: Quinn Ehlen or Cole Knickelbine. Few years back would be: Blake Castaneda. Actually, it’s their coach. The salad on Cole Knickelbine isn’t bad.
