Former Flyer Rick Tocchet Pleads Guilty
Former Flyers winger and my favorite Flyer of all-time, Rick Tocchet, pleaded guilty to charges of promoting gambling and conspiracy. Due to the plea Tocchet will most likely avoid a prison term. It seems like they came to an amicable agreement for both sides here as it looks as if he knew they had enough to get him on something but they knew they didn’t have enough to get him on the level of involvement they thought he was. It does seem like his coaching career will be over in the NHL though as I don’t see many teams wanting to pick him up.
