With sights likely on selling at the deadline, who could be for sale for the Flyers as the March 3 trade deadline approaches?
As we prepare for the start of the NHL Draft, we are providing this preview from the Flyers perspective, looking at targets with the fifth overall pick, a recent history of the fifth overall pick, and the possibility of the Flyers trading the pick.
The Flyers finished with the fifth overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft following the two draft lottery drawings.
Flyers 2019 first-round pick Cam York, on his 20th birthday, and 2019 second-round pick Bobby Brink joined the rest of Team USA in claiming gold at the World Junior Championships with a 2-0 win over Team Canada on Tuesday night.
After Finland erased a 3-1 USA lead in the final 10 minutes of the third, Arthur Kaliyev scored with 1:16 remaining to give the US a 4-3 win in the Semi-final Round, advancing to the Gold Medal Game on Tuesday where they will face Canada.
Over the next few days, we will look at centers, wingers and defensemen, as well as the possibility of the Flyers trading the pick during the first night of the draft. We start our NHL Draft preview with a look at centers.
