The Flyers' offense is rolling through six games, and Sean Couturier is one of the main reasons why. Over the final quarter of the season last year, the Flyers were nearly unwatchable. The losses mounted, star players disappointed and frustration hit a boiling point when the team failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second time in the last three seasons. However, one of the few bright spots was the surprising play, on defense and offense, of Sean Couturier.
Flyers General Manager Ron Hextall raised eye brows when he chose to protect Scott Laughton in the expansion draft over the summer. The 2012 first-round draft pick scored seven goals and had 14 assists in 71 games with the Flyers in 2015-16, but Laughton languished the entire season last year with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Although it looked, from the outside at least, that his value to the organization had plummeted, nothing could have been further from the truth.
In all, the Flyers will dress 11 players in their Wednesday season opener with less than three years of NHL experience. It took an extra day, but Flyers General Manager Ron Hextall put the finishing touch on the team’s roster for the 2017-18 season. Late Monday night, he placed veteran forward Matt Read on waivers to get from 24 players to the mandatory 23 by Tuesday’s deadline.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
