SJHN Daily: Flyers Let Justin Braun’s Dad Guest Coach Son’s Likely Last NHL Game

In what was likely his last NHL game, former San Jose Sharks defenseman Justin Braun had his father behind the bench.

A classy move was made by the Philadelphia Flyers and John Tortorella last night to not only allow Paul Braun behind the bench but to give Justin some power play time in the hopes of getting him to 200 career NHL points. Unfortunately for Braun, there was only one power play, and he couldn’t register a point. He was on the ice for 46 seconds of the man advantage.

“Yeah, I think so,” Braun said when asked by NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Keith Jones if this was the final game of his career. “It’s good to have my parents here and my family. It’s been a great run, and I am glad my family is here to enjoy it with me.”

Braun even got a solo lap before warm-ups as the feeling of retirement had begun to set in.

Braun skated in 607 games for Team Teal, and much of it paired with Marc-Edouard Vlasic. Braun finished his San Jose Sharks career with 154 points before the former 2007 seventh-round pick was dealt to the Flyers in June of 2019.
