On Tuesday at Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone, the club had 23 players on the practice ice. The Flyers have to submit their 23-player roster and taxi squad of four to six players by 5 p.m. ET Tuesday.

Morgan Frost was one of the 23 players and he was wearing a white jersey, an indication that the 21-year-old center will be the club's 13th forward to open the 2020-21 season. The other 22 players had on either an orange or black jersey.

Shayne Gostisbehere did not practice. He was out last Saturday and Sunday, listed as "unfit to play."

The Flyers on Monday placed Samuel Morin, Chris Bigras, Andy Andreoff, Tyler Wotherspoon, Alex Lyon, Nate Prosser and Derrick Pouliot on waivers. Those seven players cleared waivers Tuesday at noon ET.
