4. Bobby Brink
This is where the prospect depth takes a big leap for the Philadelphia Flyers. While Bobby Brink is another college player like the last three above him on this list, what makes him much more exciting is that he is just 19-years-old and already in his sophomore season. The uber-talented American born forward was drafted 34th overall by the Flyers in 2019 after a ridiculous 35 goal, 68-point season in just 43 games with the Sioux City Musketeers of the USHL.
After being drafted, Brink headed to the University of Denver, where he continued to impress with 24 points in just 28 games as an 18-year-old. He was also able to represent Team USA at the World Juniors that year, scoring a goal and adding one helper in five games. Brink has only been able to play in seven games with the University of Denver this season, but has managed five points. He was also able to compete on the world stage again at the 2021 World Juniors where he made a great impression on Flyers fans with six points in seven contests. One concern regarding him is his size as he is listed at just five-foot-eight, 159 pounds. However, it is important to remember that at just 19-years-old, he still has time to grow.
3. Tyson Foerster
Flyers fans have to be quite happy with the fact that they were able to get Tyson Foerster with the 23rd overall pick at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Given that the recently turned 19-year-old forward had a big season in the OHL with the Barrie Colts with 36 goals and 80 points, many expected him to be selected within the top 20. Perhaps the even more impressive thing about Foerster’s season was the fact that he was able to post those numbers without virtually any help, as the next leading scorer on the Colts roster had just 47 points.
Foerster came quite close to cracking the Team Canada roster at the 2021 World Juniors, which is quite impressive given how stacked they were this year. He will more than likely get his chance to play in the tournament in 2022 however, and he has a chance to be relied on as one of Canada’s top offensive threats. This pick has the potential to be looked back on as a major steal.
