The Flyers have fired head coach Peter Laviolette after an 0-3 start to the season. Assistant coach Craig Berube is expected to take charge of the team. An official announcement will be made at a press conference at 11 a.m.

Confirmation of Laviolette's dismissal came from Frank Seravalli of the Daily News and Sam Carchidi of the Inquirer.

Laviolette coached the Flyers to the 2010 Stanley Cup final, but last season was the team's first since 2007 without a trip to the playoffs.

We'll have more details soon.
