Flyers Prospect Camp Ends: Philadelphia Flyers Rink Rats

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The Flyers prospect camp wrapped up on Tuesday. Like every camp, several prospects stood out, several were just average and several need more work.

Wherever Scott Laughton ends up, he just wants to be ‘a reliable player.’

Laughton has been all over the fans’ radar since his five-game stint with the Flyers during the lockout season. He showed lots of promise and potential, but the Flyers have enough centers as it is right now. There is nowhere for Laughton to go. Unless Vincent Lecavalier gets traded, which I do not think he will, Ron Hextall will ship Laughton up to Lehigh Valley.

Fifth-round pick Oskar Lindblom has set his sights on the NHL, but he wants to take his time with his development.

Lindblom became one of the more underrated prospects at the Flyers prospect camp. He is not a finesse player by any stretch, but he does the little things that win games. His relentless pursuit of the puck will create turnovers. His play on the boards make him a greater asset to any team who own his rights. Combine those with his fluid skating and great size, Lindblom could be a late-round steal if he maximizes his potential.

Shawn Reznik gives his final observations from the Flyers prospect camp.

During the last five days of the Flyers prospect camp, Reznik has shared his opinions on each prospect. He made sure to keep an eye on more well-known players like Samuel Morin, Shayne Gostisbehere and Laughton, but he also shared his opinions on lesser known players. Reznik calmed some of the hype surrounding Gositisbehere, which was sobering because the Frozen Four launched Ghost into a new level. One player all of us should pay attention to in the coming years is Terrance Amorosa. Reznik said Amorosa could be another late-round gem for the Flyers.
