Of the 30 skaters mentioned on the list below, 15 have suited up for at least one game with the Adirondack Phantoms and six have suited up for at least one game with the Trenton Titans. Both squads aren’t at the top of the league for scoring. The Phantoms have been held to two goals or less in 10 of their 17 games this season, while the Titans have scored the third-fewest number of goals in the ECHL this year with 39 tallies in 16 contests.

In Adirondack, the club has lit the lamp 44 times. The trio of Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, and Zac Rinaldo have accounted for 17 goals and 23 assists. The 15 prospects’ on this list have provided 25 goals for the Phantoms. Both Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson have scored one goal this year to round out Adirondack’s 44, which comes to an average of 2.59 goals per game.

As for the Titans, they average 2.44 goals per game, the second-worst goals per game average in the entire ECHL. Out of their 39 tallies, the six players on the list have scored nine of them. Jason Akeson, Marcel Noebels, Luke Pither, and Blake Kessel have provided two goals each, while the newly added Johnston has potted one in his first two games with the team.

The Phantoms and Titans are the two teams who have the most players on this list for obvious reasons, but one team that has multiple representatives and isn’t related to the Flyers’ organization is the Oshawa Generals. Both Scott Laughton and Colin Suellentrop play for the Generals, who are fifth in the 10-team Eastern Conference of the OHL. Although the pair won’t accumulate the most goals (one is a gritty forward and the other is a defenseman), the tandem have been involved in a combined 30 points for a team that has registered 91 goals in 27 contests.
