2. Cam York

Another promising First-Rounder the Philadelphia Flyers have in their system is Cam York, who they took with the 14th pick of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. The 20-year-old defenseman was drafted after posting point per game numbers in the USHL for the U.S. National U-18 Team, and moved on to the University of Michigan the following season. York began the college season as an 18-year-old and by all accounts fit right in. By the time the season came to an end, he had 16 points in 30 games. He also suited up for Team USA at the 2020 World Juniors, but was held pointless in five games.

This 2020-21 season has seen York suit up for 14 games thus far with Michigan, posting 10 points. He was able to compete again for Team USA at this year’s World Juniors, and played a huge part in them winning the Gold Medal with six points in seven games. He has star-studded potential and will be a huge part of the Philadelphia Flyers blueline sooner than later.

1. Morgan Frost

Considering how much talk has surrounded Morgan Frost over the years, it can be hard to remember that he is still just 21-years-old. The Philadelphia Flyers were able to select the high scoring OHL forward with the 27th overall pick at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft and, much like Tyson Foerster, Frost has the chance to become a steal. At the time he was drafted, Frost was coming off of a 20 goal, 62-point season with the Soo Greyhounds, which were solid totals but only a glimpse into just how good he truly is.

The following two seasons with the Greyhounds saw Frost really go off, scoring 27 goals and 221 points in a combined 125 games. While he was a surprising cut from Team Canada at the 2018 World Juniors, he was able to play in the 2019 tournament and continued to impress offensively with eight points in five games.

The 2019-20 season marked his first as a professional, where his offense continued. In 41 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL he put up 29 points in 41 games, finishing just one point back of the team lead in scoring despite playing much fewer games than most of his teammates. He also suited up for 20 games with the Flyers, where he scored two goals and seven points. It shouldn’t be long until he becomes an offensive force in the NHL for the Philadelphia Flyers.
