Joe Paterson fired as head coach of Adirondack Phantoms!/NHLFlyers/sta...40782506340353

NEWS UPDATE #Flyers have relieved Joe Paterson as head coach of Adirondack Phantoms, their AHL affiliate FULL RELEASE

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have relieved Joe Paterson of his duties as head coach of their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

No successor has been named at this time.

“As an organization, we feel the Phantoms need a new voice moving forward,” Holmgren said. “We would like to thank Joe for his hard work and service to the Phantoms over the past season and a half, but we feel a new direction is needed at this time.”
I don't understand it really, Homer and Lavy both praised him for his great work with the players during the year.

  • Paterson was very good at being the face of the team throughout the year and handling public relations duties. Brought that a long way.
  • To say move will be hugely unpopular in Glens Falls, where Paterson is a full-time resident, is an understatement.
