For the first time in over half a decade, the Philadelphia Flyers concluded their prospect development with a full five on five scrimmage. While the team had completed a three on three half ice tourney the previous day, it gave some idea of how some prospects would look in tight
With the 2019 NHL Entry Draft rapidly approaching I had some ideas of what may happen there. I think there will be trades and it’s possible that it could affect the top 10 and more as we move forward.
1) The Edmonton Oilers trade the 8th overall selection in a deal
Jonah Gadjovich – Good play along the wall. Skating is still a bit choppy. Good defensive instincts. Very engaged on every shift. Crisp passing.
Guillaume Brisebois – Good accurate wrist shot on the power play. Puck movement was good. Good directional skater. Accurate passer. Feisty, not afraid to get chippy to
The world’s most talked about mascot, Gritty, made his Harlem Globetrotters debut in a trick shot video released minutes ago. The Philadelphia Flyers mascot joined Globetrotters stars Hoops Green, Zeus McClurkin, and Philly native Speedy Artis around the Wells Fargo Center for a series of tricks. It culminates with Zeus

Voorhees - - JVR is back in Philadelphia. He fits in this town. He had mostly good times in Philadelphia. He was a home-grown player who was drafted 2nd overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He didn’t need to be sold on the organization. He knew he was going
Travis Sanheim plays better in the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo Center. A lot of rookies play this way and the key is to get the most of them on the road as well. In the regular season Sanheim had 10 points on the season and seven of them
Team USA cruised to an 9-0 win over Denmark. No surprise there. The aspect of this team that could be worrisome to the competition is their speed and size.
Kailer Yamamoto (5-8, Oilers) may be the most dangerous player in the tournament. He’s surely one of the smartest and his brief
