Hello everyone and welcome again to Flyers Trivia. Today we will take a look at Flyers players and their selection in the draft. Before we get started, let's recap last week. We had a lot of people answer our Who am I segment. Good Job by all those who guessed Dave Poulin.
Before Dave Hakstol can start coaching the team, he needs to know what players he has to work with on the roster.
Ron Hextall continues to add to the many decisions the Flyers will have to make this offseason.
Last week, Hextall tapped into the KHL for two free agents - defenseman Yevgeni Medvedev and forward Aaron Palushaj. Both were primarily depth signing in the event of unforeseen injuries in the best interest of practicing continued patience with prospects.
That said, there are four top defensive prospects waiting in the wings and potentially competing for a job with the likes of NHL veterans and players who have barely reached the NHL level but have played there before.
Something's gotta give eventually for the Flyers defensive group.
Each team has played two games of round-robin play at this year's Memorial Cup, and so far, Oshawa is the only team to win both of their games -- clinching a berth in the tournament semi-final, at the least.
In both games, Samuel Morin is scoreless with seven penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating. The Rimouski Océanic have lost both of their games thus far, and have only scored six goals compared to their opponents' 11.
As expected, Tyrell Goulbourne has not returned to the Kelowna Rockets' lineup. The Rockets are 1-1 in the tournament so far.
Round-robin play resumes tonight with the Rockets taking on the Generals. The Océanic return to the ice tomorrow to close out the round-robin portion against the Quebec Remparts.
Stay tuned with Flyerdelphia as we update the progress of the tournament, as it prepares for its playoff stage.
