Philadelphia Flyers load up at the blue line in seven-round NHL Mock Draft simulation

The NHL Mock Draft is a fun way to project who will fall where come draft day, and for the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s even more interesting this year with so many picks.

Pick 150: Mikhail Yegorov, G/Omaha Lancers

With more size than Louka Cloutier, Mikhail Yegorov could be the more potential-laden prospect of the two. Both, however, posted similar numbers in the USHL and will look to improve their respective stocks in the NCAA, with Yegorov heading to Boston University. If he ends up in the Flyers system and fills out his frame, several NHL teams could end up vying to get him into their respective systems. 

Pick 173: Daniel Nieminen, D/Pelicans

Daniel Nieminen can still pack on a good 15-20 pounds, but his contract in Finland also runs through 2026-27, which gives him more than enough time in that regard. He already possesses a solid defensive game, but after putting up eight goals and 29 points in 37 regular season games, there’s no ruling out strong two-way potential

Pick 177: Oskar Vuollet, RW/Skelleftea

So far, we’ve looked at one versatile forward in Julius Miettinen, and Oskar Vuollet is in the same mold, even if he doesn’t carry the former’s size. Still, you can’t help but get amped up over Vuollet’s production, in which he finished the 2023-24 regular season with 29 goals and 61 points in 41 games, plus another 14 goals and 21 points in just nine playoff games - or 2.33 points per game. 

Pick 205: Artur Faizov, C/Yugra Khanty-Mansiysk

We got another versatile forward here brimming with potential and good size, so now it’s time to see what he can do in Russia’s second-tier pro league, and if Artur Faizov can parlay that into something more.
