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 …

Future Flyers Report: Laughton’s big week, Leier to play in Super Series, Lauridsen update

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. Thanks to Daniel Malta Last night, Laughton …

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.

Ranking the Flyers’ Prospects: Defense

Last Monday I ranked the Flyers’ top 10 prospects at forward as I see it. You can click here to view my forward rankings. This week I rank the Flyers’ top 10 defensive prospects. Overall, I like what the Flyers have in their system on the blue line. Names such as Robert Haag and Samuel Morin stick out due to their high potential and where they were selected in the draft. Philadelphia also possesses some lesser known defenseman such as Fredrick Larsson, Maxim Lamarche, and Mark Alt that I believe could have an impact at the NHL level someday. Check …

Munroe the Magnificent stars as Phantoms rout Crunch

Scott Munroe was the silent hero on Sunday afternoon, as he stopped 42-of-43 shots while the rest of the Phantoms uncharacteristically came together as a team and took it to the Syracuse Crunch by a 6-1 score in front of 3,076 fans at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Adirondack (19-24-3) had something to prove after a week of drama on and off the ice including a loss at Syracuse on Friday night. Goals by Erik Gustafsson, Matt Mangene, Jeff Dimmen and David Laliberte  chased starter Riku Helenius out of the net after two periods, while Cullen Eddy and Laliberte tallied in …
