Future Flyers Report: Comment on Gostisbehere, a look at The Subway Super Series

There has been a lot of interest in Philadelphia Flyers’ prospect Shayne Gostisbehere since the team picked him in the third round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. This weekend may have created even more intrigue around the defenseman, as an opposing coach had some strong opinions on the blue liner. Gostisbehere, who was named ECAC’s Player of the Week, played well this weekend against RPI. According to SB Nation’s Jeff Cox, Seth Appert, RPI’s head coach, said after Saturday’s game that Gostisbehere,”is the best player in the country.” Now whether the coach said it in all honesty or to …

2014 Draft Eligibles: Oshawa’s Dal Colle worthy of a top five selection come June

Back in September, before the OHL season began, I did a quick preview of the top ten OHL players who are NHL draft eligible this season. (You can view my rankings here.) Oshawa Generals center Michael Dal Colle ranked number two on my initial list behind Barrie Colts defender Aaron Ekblad. I still feel Ekblad is the best overall OHL prospect for the draft and will probably be a top 2 pick come June. However, my opinion on Dal Colle has changed. I thought he would be a mid-first round selection, but after an incredible start to the year, Dal …

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.

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 …

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 …
