Brett Berard – 5-9, 152 – RW - In both
Here are some players who have looked good in the early going.
1) Will Francis – 6-4, 205 – D – Cedar Rapids- He’s an Anaheim pick committed to Minnesota Duluth. He’s very solid defensively. I like the way he strips the puck. He can break up scoring chances with his

German Rubstov – He gets high marks. He’s back where he was pre-injuries. He’s strong on his skates, makes intelligent plays and is already solid on the PK. All great signs for him to start the season with.
Joel Farabee – He knows where to go without the puck.
On July 1st the Flyers signed defenseman, Chris Bigras to a two-year, two-way contract. The Rangers had this RFA, but they never made him an offer. Now 24, he’s coming off an ankle injury that saw him shut down his season last February. Getting the first practice under his belt
