Undrafted and signed by Toronto back in 2019 before being traded to the Florida Panthers, Mason Marchment broke out last season when he recorded 47 points in 54 games played with the Panthers. Though there is not much to go off of, Marchment comes in at 6’4” 209 lbs and had a cap hit last year at $800k. The big winger presumably would not cost much at all against the cap, and could be a solid replacement should the Flyers choose to unload salary cap in the form of a James Van Riemsdyk or Oskar Lindblom trade.

With the team essentially at the lowest it has been in years, this is a low risk move for a team that can’t get much worse and has the potential upside of a 50+ point-scorer in a player signed to less than $2m annually. Marchment brings size and aggression to the wing, which the Flyers should be looking to add.
