The Philadelphia Flyers may be struggling to produce points at the moment, but the franchise’s top prospect isn’t. Scott Laughton is currently averaging two points per game in the OHL with the Oshawa Generals, as he has been looking like a man amongst boys.

After he scored a goal against the Kingston Frontenacs on Saturday, Laughton provided a five-point performance on Sunday in a 5-3 win for the Generals over the Peterborough Petes. The forward recorded three assists, but he also had a pair of goals, one of which was highlight reel material.

Last night, Laughton registered a three-assist night in a 7-1 win for the Ottawa 67′s. The performance extends Laughton’s point streak to five games during which he has four goals and seven assists.

In the WHL, Taylor Leier has been named to the league’s roster for the 2013 Subway Super Series. Leier is one of four Portland Winterhawks to be named to the roster already, as the trio of Derrick Pouliot, Brendan Leipsic, and Nicolas Petan will also represent the WHL. Leier is currently third on Portland with 22 points.

In the AHL, Oliver Lauridsen has produced one assist and a plus-6 rating in 11 games so far with the Phantoms. Despite having the best plus/minus out of any Flyer or Phantom this season, and having the best plus/minus for any defenseman in the organization, Lauridsen has also racked up 33 PIMs. Fortunately for the Flyers, some of the PIMs came defending a teammate.
