The Philadelphia Flyers could soon bolster their hockey operations, as Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports the club is interested in recruiting former Los Angeles Kings executive Dean Lombardi.

Lombardi last served as general manager of the Kings, leading the team to Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014. He was fired in April following a second playoff miss in three seasons.

While it’s unclear what role Lombardi would have with the Flyers, his addition would mark a reunion with Flyers general manager Ron Hextall.

Hextall was a part of the Kings organization from 2006-13, where he served as assistant GM to Lombardi. He joined the Flyers in 2013.

Lombardi is also familiar with Philadelphia, as he served as a scout with the Flyers from 2003-06 prior to joining Los Angeles.
