Assistant John Torchetti, who was just appointed, will now oversee the power play, while assistant Darryl Williams will oversee the penalty kill.

Torch has a lot of experience playing in front of the net, dealing with the forwards, and running the power play, so those will be his major responsibilities," Yeo said.

After Michel Therrien was sacked, Williams took over as the power play coordinator.

On the power play, the Flyers rank 30th out of 32 teams, converting on only 15% of their opportunities. In their previous six games, they have gone 0 for 16.

They are 26th in the league in penalty kills, with a 20 percent success rate. Over the previous five games, the PK is only 8 for 13.

Assistant Nick Schultz, who had been assisting with the PK from the bench, will now serve as the "eye in the sky," providing "another set of eyes and a voice from above," according to Yeo.
