Let’s catch up with some of the Philadelphia Flyers prospects.

Philadelphia Flyers prospects Tanner Laczynski and Wade Allison have each signed entry level contracts last week. Meanwhile, forwards Noah Cates, Bobby Brink, and defenseman Cam York have all decided to return to school. Defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk is still deciding on whether or not to sign a contract or not.

Tanner Laczynski was taken in the sixth round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft and had just finished his fourth season at Ohio State where he racked up 143 points in 138 games. Laczynski signed his entry-level contract on March 23 and should add some much needed offensive depth to a depleted Lehigh Valley Phantoms roster for next season and possibly contend for a bottom six roster spot for the Flyers.

Wade Allison, who was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NHL Draft, signed his entry level contract with the Flyers on March 27. Allison racked up 45 goals and totaled 97 points during 106 games at Western Michigan while playing in four seasons for the school. Allison comes with much intrigue as many fans can’t wait to see how his game projects at the pro level.

Defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk as mentioned above has yet to decide whether to turn pro or return to Wisconsin for his senior season. Kalynuk is a seventh round draft pick of the Flyers and has racked up 78 points in just 110 games while playing for the Badgers.

Flyers 2019 first round pick Cam York will return to Michigan University for his sophomore season after posting 5 goals and 16 points his 30 games during his freshman season.

Forward prospect and 2019 second round pick Bobby Brink will also return to school for his sophomore season. Brink posted very good numbers during his freshman season at the University of Denver, recording 11 goals and 24 points over the course of 28 games before having his season cut short with an ankle injury.

2017 seventh round pick, Noah Cates will return to the University of Minnesota-Duluth for his junior year. As a sophomore Cates excelled as he scored 14 goals and racked up 33 points in 34 games, improving in all scoring categories while playing in six less games. At this point, it looks like all remaining collegiate prospects will return to school next season.
