Kimmo Timonen is already planning his future after his playing days.

The veteran defenseman, making his last run at a Stanley Cup as a member of the Blackhawks, plans to contact Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall this offseason in hopes to taking a job in the front office with his former team, reports Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Timonen has yet to record a point in 31 games with the Blackhawks. He sat out Game 6 and Game 7 of the Western Conference final against the Anaheim Ducks after skating under 10 minutes per game in the postseason.

The 40-year-old sat out most of the season because of blood clots in his legs and had already confirmed reports that this season would be his last.

Timonen recorded 38 goals and 232 assists for 270 points in 519 games with the Flyers over seven seasons. He is a five-time winner of the Barry Ashbee Trophy as the Flyers' best defenseman, including the last three consecutive seasons.
