The pair of Scott Laughton and Taylor Leier have played the most games out of any of the Philadelphia Flyers’ prospects, and they are averaging over a point per game in the process. Ironically for both players, neither of them lead their junior teams in scoring.

Laughton has 11 goals and eight helpers in the Oshawa Generals’ first 11 games this season. The forward sits third on the Generals in scoring, as the pair of Michael Dal Colle, who has 23 points, and Josh Sterk, who has 20 points, sit in front of him. Laughton does, however, have the highest point-per-game average on the squad with 1.73, as most of the Generals have played in 15 games.

As for Leier, he has eight goals and 10 helpers for 18 points in 15 games, which is good enough to be tied for third in points for the Portland Winterhawks with Chase De Leo. Ahead of Leier and De Leo are Oliver Bjorkstrand and Nicolas Petan, who each have 30 points. Bjorkstrand was taken 17 picks after Tyrell Goulbourne by the Columbus Blue Jackets with the 89th overall pick in this year’s NHL Entry Draft.
