PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers have not renewed the contract of longtime goalie coach Reggie Lemelin.

Lemelin, a former NHL goalie, had been with the Flyers since the 1993-94 season. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren says the move was made because it was time for a change.

Holmgren did not say Thursday who will replace Lemelin.

Holmgren also said he’s not optimistic the Flyers will move up or down in the first round of the NHL draft. The Flyers have the 21st pick.
