Future Flyers Report: 11/12

  The Flyers used two of their seven draft picks in this year’s draft on forwards. The first was center Scott Laughton, who they selected in the first round at 20th overall. The second was Taylor Leier, the only winger selected by Philly in the draft, in the fourth round at 117th overall. Although Laughton plays with the Oshawa Generals in the OHL and Leier plays in the WHL with the Portland Winterhawks, both skaters have participated in the same number of games due to Laughton in the midst of a 10-game suspension. With 14 games apiece, Leier has produced 14 …

Future Flyers Report: 11/5

Despite a cloud of suspicion for his late Summer activities, Nick Cousins leads all Philadelphia Flyers prospects in scoring so far this season. The fact he has played more games than any other forward on the list shouldn’t take away from what he has done to this point. Not only does he lead his team — the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds — in points, which is currently a margin of 10 over right winger Sergey Tolchinsky, Cousins sits seventh overall in the Ontario Hockey League with 27 points over 18 games. The center has registered at least one point in 15 different contests this …

Future Flyers Report: 10/22

FORWARDS: Thanks to the fact the OHL is the league furthest into their 2012-2013 season, skaters from the Ontario Hockey League lead both lists in this week’s Future Flyers Report standings. Both Nick Cousins and Scott Laughton have played 13 games so far this season, but Cousins has two more goals and four more assists than Laughton for a six-point lead at the top of the forwards’ list. Andrew Rowe and Marcel Noebels come in third and fourth, as they are the top scoring Flyers’ prospects in the ECHL. A rather surprising stat is Eric Wellwood’s one assist in four games for …

Flyers System Inventory: Defensemen

I would like to spend the next several weeks examining the Flyers farm system to take stock of what type of prospects they actually have so we can look for areas of strength and need. This will help give us an idea of what they need to focus on in future drafts. We kick it off this week by taking a look at the defensemen on the farm. Pros (AHL/ECHL): Marc-Andre Bourdon , 22, drafted 3rd round of 2008 entry draft. 2011-2012:  45gp  4g  3a  7pts  +4  (NHL) Bourdon was an offensive defenseman in juniors, but settled into a defensive …

This is one of a billion people named Fredrik Larsson, who is not Fredric Larsson

Flyers draft Fredric Larsson

With the 111th pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, the Flyers select Fredric Larsson from the Swedish Junior Hockey League. The 17-year-old is a 6’3″ (or he is 18-years old and 6’1″, depending on the source) left-handed defenseman who appears to be a defensive-minded blue liner as well as rough player. In 19 games for Brynäs J18, he accumulated a whopping 109 penalty minutes and was a +25. Larsson is considered to be a sleeper pick in this year’s draft. Via USA Today: Larsson came out of nowhere late in the season and was terrific in Sweden’s junior under-20 playoffs for Brynas, …
