3 dynamic prospects who will help fuel the Flyers reset in 2024-25

The Philadelphia Flyers are still in playoff contention, but they are also on the cusp of a retooling. So, let’s talk about a few high-end prospects who may help fuel it.

Elliot Desnoyers is a prime candidate to join the Flyers later next season

Another prospect who saw ice time with the Flyers in the past, Elliot Desnoyers, could carve a spot for himself on the final roster. But it’s more likely that he will find a place in the lineup later next season, likely following the trade deadline, unless he enjoys a major jump in production. 

It was there for Desnoyers last year when he had 23 goals and 44 points in 63 games. But that productivity regressed in his second season with the Phantoms, scoring just four goals and 18 points through 53 contests, good for just 0.33 points per game. 

He will be in a contract season in 2024-25, so expect the former fifth-round pick to up his game as he looks to show he’s not just worthy of staying in the system but getting an extended look with the big club. Desnoyoers, however, has his fair share of attributes, such as the ability to float between center and wing, take faceoffs in all situations, and you see his work ethic in every shift. 

If the Flyers are down a lower-liner or two next season and if Desnoyers enjoys a bounceback season, look for him to earn more minutes at the NHL level.
