Flyers’ Nolan Patrick to Request Trade Out of Philadelphia

Reports are that Philadelphia Flyers’ forward Nolan Patrick switched agents because his intention is to ask the team for a trade.

As per a report via TheFourthPeriod.com, Philadelphia Flyers’ forward Nolan Patrick is looking for a new home. He’s not happy with his situation and is planning to, if he hasn’t already, let the organization know that he’d like to be traded and isn’t interested in returning.

The report suggests that there’s a reason he switched agencies recently. In May, Patrick hired his 3rd agent in the last three years. TSN’s Frank Seravalli added he figured maybe Patrick could use a fresh start with a new team this summer. Flyers’ insider Anthony SanFilippo of Crossing Broad reported last week on the “Snow The Goalie” podcast that the belief is that Patrick wants out of Philadelphia.

“The reason Nolan Patrick switched agents is because he is going to request a trade,” said SanFilippo. “Nolan Patrick does not want to be here anymore; he doesn’t like the criticism that he’s facing, he doesn’t like the spotlight that’s on him, he doesn’t like the coach, at all.” Finally, SanFilippo says, “I don’t think Nolan Patrick wants to be here.”

Is Patrick Worth Taking a “Flyer” On?

Nolan Patrick had issues with migraines and had a rough season this year, but a right handed center, who is only 22 and will cost less in a trade than someone like Sam Reinhart or Jack Eichel, might be worth looking into if you’re a team that is watching this Flyers situation closely. There is certainly a risk involved considering he missed the entirety of the 2019-20 season, but if he’s healthy, he could play well in a new environment.

He had a promising rookie season, (tallied 30 points in 73 games), but he’s had an injury-riddled career since. At this point, he’s serviceable, bottom-six forward with a higher ceiling that has yet to be reached. The Flyers elected to hang onto him in the hopes he would produce when healthy, but it hasn’t happened and if he asks for a trade, they might try to accommodate.

    He’d be a good fit with the Penguins and would likely do well.
