The 2024 NHL Draft is now under a month away. In between now and then, the league will crown its champion and shift its focus on the event that impacts the future more than any other.

The Philadelphia Flyers are very much a team looking to make a big impact on the future of their organization. They want to have a great draft that can help them win a Stanley Cup. There is already a young core being put in place but they'd like to have more talent show up.

How many draft picks do they have? Well, it depends on who you ask. For one, we know that they are going to make their original first-round selection at number 12 overall.

After that, they have the first-round pick that originally belonged to the Florida Panthers. It was given to them in the Claude Giroux trade. Florida is still alive in the Eastern Conference Finals so the pick will either be 29, 30, 31, or 32 depending on how they finish.

The second round is where things get questionable. They traded their original 2024 second-round pick to the Carolina Hurricanes back in 2022 for Tony DeAngelo.

They did get one back, however, as a compensatory pick for not signing 2019 first-round pick Jay O'Brien.

The Flyers also have another second-round pick that originally belonged to the Columbus Blue Jackets (Ivan Provorov trade). However, after the first round is concluded, the Jackets can pick between giving the Flyers their 2024 pick or their 2025 pick so we have to wait and see.

The Flyers also hold their original 3rd, 6th, and 7th-round picks. They don't have a fourth-round pick at all. They have a fifth-round pick from both the Los Angeles Kings (Brendan Lemieux trade) and Vegas Golden Knights (Noah Hanifin trade) along with a 6th from the St. Louis Blues (Kevin Hayes trade).

That gives them 10 picks total in the draft but it will become 9 if the Blue Jackets hold their second-round pick and give the Flyers their 2025 second instead. Either way, there are a lot of picks to be made. We'll see how many of them they keep. It may be all of them.

Philly is currently scheduled to make 10 picks in 2025 as well and it will be 11 if the Jackets delay that second until next year. Over the two years, it is a total of four first-round picks and four second-round picks which makes it an even better situation.

The future is bright in Philadelphia with all of the talent they already have coming in and these picks could make it even brighter.
