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.

Good - I felt adding more grit to the front office was a major offseason goal.

Awesome!

He played a big role in Voynov's signing recently right? Wonder why he left FlyersWest to come home. Eventual Homer replacement?

Glad to see that Holmgren is so humble in hiring his eventual replacement

Anyway, not crazy about the continued family run business but at least Hextall has been away from it and can still offer an outside perspective of sorts...

What a ridiculous, twisted, and disgusting organization we have here. We treat our players like crap, and we constantly stab everyone associated with the orange and black directly in the back with no just cause or discernible motive. Nobody would ever want to come ba----

Wait a minute...

It's now even truer than ever: our front office can beat up your front office.

I would have to imagine Chris Pryor is getting a promotion as well since he was the Director of Hockey Operations prior to this move.

hextal has been around the league and seen how everybody does things. the build from the ground up lessons he got from Lombardi will serve him well. the development of quick and bernier add a lot to his resume. if anyone has shown the patienc weve been asking for its hexxy. so glad to see him back in the Orgaization.

though it does tweek my suspiscions that Holmgren has bet his knot with lavi and if one goes the other will too.

I don't see Snider firing Homer. I bet Homer moves upstairs to a different job & Hextall takes over in a few years.

I could see Holmgren going back to the scouting department should he be replaced by Hexy.
