Goodevening Philadelphia Flyers fans! For those interested, most countries are holding their World Junior Evaluation camps right now. Games can be streamed from FastHockey.com and include many young players. Some Flyers prospects that can be seen are Sam Morin, Travis Sanheim, Robert Hagg, Oskar Lindblom, and Radel Fazleev. Tonight we bring you the latest stories from around Flyers nation and the NHL.
In his daily blog on Hockeybuzz.com, Meltzer takes a look at a few different issues. First, he explains that Michael Del Zotto will be an RFA at the end of the season. He also gives a few notes about prospects in action and even includes a throwback article.
The big defenseman was the 7th overall pick in the 2014 NHL draft. Fleury projects as a solid two-way defenseman who is a good skater. At 6’3″, 207lbs Fleury projects to be a solid blue-liner for the foreseeable future in Carolina. He will likely be sent back to the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL next season.
Ryan White is a depth center. He will likely be used in similar fashion to how players like Kris Newbury and Chris VandeVelde were used last season. He will be a 4th liner when in the NHL and spend a lot of time on the (hopefull) much improved Phantoms. The details of his contract have not been disclosed, but it is probably simliar to his last contract (one year, $700.000).
As a part of their 30 in 30 series, NHL.com took an in depth look into the New York Rangers today. Although it is not always fun to read up on your rivals, it can be beneficial.
