Snider Keeping Busy Despite NHL Lockout

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The Flyers were supposed to begin their NHL season this week. But, with a lockout of the players, the NHL has already canceled the first two weeks of the season.

Flyers chairman Ed Snider is not happy, with a team he knows can get to the finals.

One thing that does make Snider happy is his effort and money the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation has done to build its fourth hockey rink for youth hockey.

The latest one is the Tarken Ice Rink in the Oxford Circle area.

However, the lockout is crushing him, and it could go on for months.

Snider is not permitted to talk about specifics, but what keeps him busy?

"None of your business," Snider said, joking with FOX 29's Howard Eskin.

When Eskin said the lockout has to eat his heart out, Snider replied, "Well, it does. It eats my heart out, it eats our fans' hearts out, it eats the players' hearts out, and I just hope that we get back here soon."
