It's been a turbulent year the goaltenders of the Flyers as the team witnessed their starter being removed from their lineup likely for good and their backup goaltender Sam Ersson being thrusted into the starting role. Recently, Ersson states that he is very appreciative of Tortorella's trusting him this year.

"Obviously, it means a lot for me in a lot of ways. He's given me a lot of chances from through the early parts of my NHL career, and I'm very grateful for that."

The 24-year-old netminder had only played his second season with the Flyers and after being put into the starting role he had played 51 games, with a record of 23-19-7 his goals against were 2.82 and the save percentage of .890.

Torts has been public with his view on Ersson's play, and he feels that his goaltender is the reason they had kept their playoff hopes alive.
Even though the end of the season was disappointing but the Flyers missing the playoffs, it's safe to say that Ersson has put himself in their lineup for the next several seasons and will continue to build off this one as the Flyers continue to improve as a team.
Much has been made of this rebuilt and it appears the Flyers are ready to take the next step by adding better players through trade while continuing to draft.
