A very surprising move from Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Flyers have made a move that has raised a great deal of eyebrows.

A report from Flyers' insider Sam Carchidi has claimed that rookie forward Travis Konecny has been benched and made a healthy scratch for Friday night's game against a very tough San Jose Sharks squad.

It's not as if Konecny is coming off a bad game either, he recorded two points in a 6-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues earlier this week and had a plus minus rating of 1 for that game, making this move even more confusing.

Head coach Dave Hakstol is calling it a learning experience but there is speculation that something more could be going on here.
