Brandon Manning (born June 4, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Prior to turning professional, Manning played major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League with the Chilliwack Bruins.[1]

On November 23, 2010, during the 2010–11 season with Chilliwack, the Philadelphia Flyers signed Manning as an undrafted free agent.[2]

On March 8, 2012, after playing 32 games (9 points) for Adirondack Phantoms in 2011–12 AHL season,[3] he was called up to the Flyers main roster to replace injured Pavel Kubina.[4] He made his NHL debut the same day in a home game against Florida Panthers.[5] On August 27, 2014, Manning signed a one-year contract to stay with the Flyers.[6]

On March 21, 2016, Manning scored his first career NHL goal against Thomas Greiss of the New York Islanders.

On December 8, 2016, during a game against the Edmonton Oilers, Oilers star Connor McDavid claimed Manning boasted on-ice that he intentionally broke McDavid's collarbone the year before which had sidelined McDavid for 37 games, which he labelled as "classless" in a post game interview.[7] Manning denied the claim.[8]
