Future Flyers Report: The later picks of 2013

Of the six draft picks the Philadelphia Flyers had in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, many fans know about Samuel Morin, Robert Hagg, and Tyrell Goulbourne. The hopes are that Morin and Hagg will be on the Flyers’ blue line for awhile starting in a few years, while Goulbourne is expected to be the second coming of Zac Rinaldo, whether that’s good news or bad news for the club. However, what about the final three picks in this year’s draft? With their fifth-round pick, the Orange and Black selected Terrance Amorosa, a 19-year-old left-handed defenseman who is 6’2″ and weighs …

The Guelph Storm keep on rolling; St. Cloud State rises in NCAA rankings; Trouble brewing in Lethbridge?

Right now, it’s a toss-up between the Guelph Storm and the Oshawa Generals for the best team in the OHL. As of today, I would give the slight edge to the Storm who are currently on an impressive 10-game winning streak. When the season started many pundits, including myself, thought the London Knights would run away with the Mid-West Division. Well, London hasn’t exactly set the world on fire and some guy named Connor McDavid is playing lights out hockey for the Erie Otters. But nobody talked about Guelph who are 15-3 on the year. The Storm are routinely scoring …

College hockey is thriving in Rhode Island ; Jordon Cooke has been stellar for Kelowna

When most people think of college hockey in New England they automatically think of Boston College, Boston University, Maine and Vermont among others. However, the Ocean State this year has two quality college teams playing at a high level. The Providence College Friars are the No.3 team in the country, after an overtime win and tie over then No.3 Miami of Ohio Red Hawks. Providence is 4-0-1 on the year.

Future Flyers Report: Laughton and Leier lead the way in offensive production

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 …
