The Philadelphia Flyers have fired general manager and president of hockey operations Chuck Fletcher, the team announced Friday.

"Over the past several seasons, our team simply has not lived up to that standard, so today, we will begin to chart a new path forward under a new leadership structure for Hockey Operations," Flyers governor Dave Scott said in a statement. "This morning, we released Chuck Fletcher from his president and general manager responsibilities. We are grateful for his hard work and dedication to this organization, and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward."

Daniel Briere will serve as the interim general manager as the team looks to fill the GM and president of hockey operations roles separately.
