In two weeks, the Flyers will select the next piece of the pipeline as they pick 18th overall in the NHL Draft.
So far, we've profiled four potential prospects, all with a common theme. Each prospect profiled so far has been a scoring winger that fits the mold of what the Flyers are looking for -- the combination of size, speed and skill that leads to lots of scoring.
In our lead up to the NHL Draft, we will exclusively focus on 10 prospects with full profiles and add another 15 names in our final prospect profile post the day before the NHL Draft. As we reach the halfway point with our fifth prospect profile, the trend of scoring wingers continues.
Our series of 2016 NHL Draft prospect profiles continues with right winger Luke Kunin.
Out of all the PhiladelphiaFlyers potential unrestricted free agents, only one seems to be universally accepted as worth bringing back for next season and oddly enough it’s the agitator of the group, Ryan White.
The team’s other two UFAs are Evgeny Medvedev and Sam Gagner. While Gagner may return if he takes a drastic pay cut, Medvedev is surely gone.
Between likely parting ways with both those players and buying out R.J. Umberger, the Flyers will most certainly use that cap space to pay their restricted free agents.
