Marie Greyhounds of the OHL in points and is 11th in the league with 11 goals and 29 assists in 29 games. Derek Mathers is first on his team and 17th in the OHL with 51 PIMs for the Peterborough Petes. He’s second to Marc-Andre Bourdon for the lead in that category across the prospects on this list, as Bourdon has 59 PIMs. Andrew Rowe is 11th in the ECHL’s Eastern Conference in terms of scoring with nine goals and 10 …

Derek Mathers is one of the tougher prospects in the Philadelphia Flyers’ system. With 47 penalty minutes in 24 games, Mathers is currently 14th in the Ontario Hockey League in time spent in the sin bin. He’s engaged in three fights so far this season and he’s won two of them in convincing fashion. In a Peterborough Petes’ 5-1 loss to the Oshawa Generals, Mathers took out his frustration on Scott Sabourin in the Flyers’ prospect’s first fight of the 2012-2013 regular season.

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.

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.

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 …
