The Philadelphia Flyers have a deep group of rookies, however, the issue is that they don’t have the amount of “A” prospects they should have.
Headlined by Cam York, here are the Flyers’ Top 10 prospects.
1. Cam York
Cam York is a fast-skating defenseman who could be a top pairing guy. His physical strength is coming along, and his offense is there. He’s not an elite offensive defenseman but he’ll be a good one for sure.
2. Bobby Brink
Bobby Brink led the NCAA in scoring and is in the Hobey Baker conversation. He’s been healthy this year and hasn’t put his body in jeopardy as much as in the past. His skating will be good enough but not great, but he can play a top-nine role based on skill and some goal scoring.
3. Ronnie Attard –
His edge work has really improved. His passes were accurate and he is surprisingly agile for a man of his 6-3, 207-pound stature. Attard has a heavy point shot too; a good tool for a defenseman.
4. Elliott Desnoyers
Elliot Desnoyers has speed, elusiveness, and a great shot. He can play two-way hockey but he’s more of a possess the puck player. His two-step quickness is excellent. He makes tough passes look easy.
Allison can be impactful when he’s healthy. But it’s been quite a few years since he’s played close to 60 regular-season games. He gets to the net and plays truculent hockey. His body is the only thing that can stop him.
6. Tyson Foerster
Unfortunately, Tyson Foerster had his season cut short with a shoulder injury that required surgery. He’s a big, at times tough, goal scorer. He has great torque on his wrist shot. His speed and stick handling are improved.
7. Noah Cates
A versatile center, Noah Cates has reached the pinnacle of college hockey and played in the Olympics this year. He’s fast, and he can play a shutdown role or a top-six role. Cates will be a top-nine center in the NHL someday.
8. Jay O’Brien
Jay O’Brien has speed and skill. He’s split as a goal score and a playmaker. His college career is going well. He needs to get physically stronger and he is better at face-offs this season.
9. Zayde Wisdom
Winger Zayde Wisdom had shoulder surgery and has been getting better as the season goes on in the OHL. His speed is decent and he gets to the net. He showed that with the Phantoms last season. Wisdom plays a good two-way, physical game.
10. Samu Tuomaala
Tuomaala’s speed and shot are pro-level. However, his engagement and play away from the puck need a lot of improvement. After leaving the Phantoms he went back overseas and hasn’t played in a lot of games. He needs to be in North America.
