When John Paddock left the Flyers front office in January to become an assistant coach for the team, it left an opening at a key position in the Flyers hierarchy – assistant general manager.

When asked, at the time, if he was going to fill the position, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren paused before saying, “not at this time.”

It was a hint that at some point, the plan was to get someone into that chair that made sense – and when the time was right.

Like today.

Holmgren announced that he was bringing back a former Flyers player and executive to take over that role, naming Ron Hextall the Assistant G.M. as well as Director of Hockey Operations.

Hextall will begin his new job with the team August 1.

“We are very pleased to welcome back Ron Hextall to our management team,” said Holmgren. “Ron has a wealth of experience in the front office in various capacities which will be a valuable addition to our staff.”

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that Ron Hextall has been named Assistant General Manager and Director of Hockey Operations, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.

“We are very pleased to welcome back Ron Hextall to our management team,” said Holmgren. “Ron has a wealth of experience in the front office in various capacities which will be a valuable addition to our staff.”

Hextall, 49 (5/3/1964), returns to the Flyers organization after spending the last seven seasons with the Los Angeles Kings as Vice President/Assistant General Manager, which included the team’s run to the Stanley Cup Championship in 2012.

He also served as the club's General Manager of the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League, the Kings’ primary affiliate. At the helm of the Monarchs, Hextall helped the team to an overall record of 290-205-24-32 in seven seasons and an appearance in the Calder Cup Playoffs in each season, including twice in the Conference Finals.

Prior to joining the Kings, Hextall spent the previous seven seasons with the Flyers, including 2002 through 06 as Director of Pro Hockey Personnel. Since his retirement from the NHL in 1999, he joined the team as a Pro Scout.

Hextall appeared in 489 regular season games during his 11-year Flyers career (1986-87 through 1991-92 and 1994-95 through 1998-99 seasons), posting a 240-172-58 record and 2.91 goals-against average. His 489 games played and 240 wins as a Flyer rank him first all-time in Flyers history. In 84 playoff games for the Flyers, Hextall registered a 45-36 record and 2.95 GAA. His 45 playoff wins are the most in Flyers history.

He became the 19th member of the team to be inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame on Feb. 6, 2008.
