This morning, in Elliotte Friedman's always-informative "30 Thoughts" column, the Sportsnet reporter noted that the Philadelphia Flyers were one of the teams in the running to sign Yale goaltender Alex Lyon.
6. One reporter's guess on the list for Yale free-agent goalie Alex Lyon? Carolina, Chicago, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Philadelphia.
Just hours later, Philadelphia apparently succeeded in making a strong enough pitch to Lyon, and added the intriguing young prospect to their pipeline.

Lyon is a 23-year old American goaltender who has spent the last three years playing for the Yale Bulldogs of the ECAC. Over the past two seasons, he has been one of the top netminders in collegiate hockey, posting a 15-7-4 record with a 0.938 save percentage in his sophomore season and an 19-8-4 record with a 0.936 save percentage in his just-concluded junior year.
The Yale goalie was named a finalist for the Mike Richter Award (given to the best netminder in college) in both his sophomore and junior seasons, and was a top-10 finalist for the Hobey Baker Award given to the best overall player in college hockey this year.
There's little risk in signing a player who showed collegiate promise to an entry-level deal, and Lyon joins a goalie pipeline in Philadelphia that currently includes Anthony Stolarz, Felix Sandstrom, Matej Tomek and Ivan Fedotov.

Lyon will likely be given every chance to make the Lehigh Valley Phantoms next season.
Goalies are notoriously difficult to scout, so the best way to find a franchise netminder is to stock the pipeline with lots of options with upside. If his college statistics are any indication, Lyon certainly qualifies.

Yale goalie Alex Lyon expected to sign NHL deal this week Alex Lyon, Yale's first-team All-American goaltender, is expected to forgo his senior season to sign an NHL contract, sources told the Register. At least a dozen teams are interested. Lyon is in the process of choosing the best offer with his family and an advisor. A decision is expected in the next few days, but, sources said, a deal appears imminent. The only question is the destination. There's been no indication of a which team is the front-runner. Lyon had roughly a dozen interested NHL suitors last spring, when he led the nation in goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts, but opted to return for his junior year. Keith Allain said at the time he understood Lyon would have a much more difficult time declining the same offers prior to his senior season. Scores of NHL scouts and high-ranking front office personnel were fixtures this season at Yale games, home and away. Lyon is once again leading the country in goals-against average (1.64) and tied for second in save percentage (.936). The Bulldogs were eliminated by UMass Lowell in the NCAA East Regional on Saturday night in Albany, New York. Lyon, an undrafted free agent, is a fourth generation Yale student. His father, Tim, grew up in Wallingford and moved to Baudette, Minnesota to raise a family. In three seasons, Lyon shattered nearly every goaltending record at Yale. He set the career record for wins (50) earlier this season, and tops career and single-season lists for goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts.
