Our series on potential Flyers draft prospects continues as we review the sixth player in the series.
As the Flyers prepare to select seventh overall, there are several players who are expected to be in that slot that could immediately fill a team need. Headlining that group are wingers Mikko Rantanen and Lawson Crouse and defenseman Ivan Provorov. Additionally, the series has also featured Dylan Strome and Noah Hanifin, both likely Top-5 picks, but easily obtainable for the Flyers if they slip outside the Top 5.
Obviously, after Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel go 1-2 to open the draft, one of these five players will be left on the board at seven. But who can go against these five as an outside chance at being the Flyers pick. That is where we pick up.
Here's our next prospect profile, highlighting center Mathew Barzal.
