The Flyers used two of their seven draft picks in this year’s draft on forwards. The first was center Scott Laughton, who they selected in the first round at 20th overall. The second was Taylor Leier, the only winger selected by Philly in the draft, in the fourth round at 117th overall. Although Laughton plays with the Oshawa Generals in the OHL and Leier plays in the WHL with the Portland Winterhawks, both skaters have participated in the same number of games due to Laughton in the midst of a 10-game suspension. With 14 games apiece, Leier has produced 14 points while Laughton has registered 13, as the pair are two of the highest point-producing forwards among Flyers’ prospects.

Entering the week with six points in 10 games, Leier now sits behind Nick Cousins for most points among Flyers’ forwards prospects with 14 points in 14 games. The 18-year-old had a pair of two-point games this weekend, as he had a goal and an assist in Portland’s 9-5 win over the Vancouver Giants on Friday and Portland’s 9-1 win over the Spokane Chiefs the following day. In the Winterhawks’ contest against the Kamloops Blazers last night, Leier had a goal in a 3-1 win.

A trio of prospects in the ECHL are performing well for Philly. Andrew Rowe is almost a point per game player, as he has produced four goals and six assists in 11 games this season. Jason Akeson and Marcel Noebels are putting up points with the Trenton Titans, as the pair each have two goals and seven assists.
