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. 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.

Future Flyers Report: Brandon Manning joins the Flyers, Leier’s Winterhawks nearly in WHL Finals, Straka and Baie-Comeau almost in QMJHL Finals

After Kent Huskins suffered a concussion from Ryan White’s illegal hit in the Philadelphia Flyers’ 7-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, yet another unexpected defenseman made an appearance on the Flyers’ blue line. This time it was Brandon Manning. Manning played in a few games for the Orange and Black last season, as he posted a plus-1 rating in four contests for Philly. He didn’t record a point with the Flyers last season, but the former Chilliwack Bruin played well in his first stretch at the NHL level. A day after Huskins’ injury, Manning appeared in his first …
