While this development camp is really not the place to do full evaluations of players and where they stand in their journey to the NHL, it is a chance to see their skills up close. Mike O’Connell, hired this offseason as a Senior Advisor to the GM and Player Development, spoke on Tuesday in detail about a number of Flyers prospects, many of which impressed him.
Flyers development camp wrapped up with a 3-on-3 tournament on Friday evening and a 5-on-5 scrimmage and shootout on Saturday evening.
One of the Flyers development camp invites was Carson Briere, son of Danny Briere. For father and son, it is a special week for a kid who grew up with the Flyers in Haddonfield, NJ.
There are three top forward prospects that are showcasing skills at development camp with their sights set on training camp in September, with a chance to make the Flyers roster.
The Flyers announced on Monday that 41 prospects will be part of development camp that will run over five days from Tuesday, June 25 to Saturday, June 30.
Even with no action on the ice, it was a busy week for the Flyers. More of the 2015-16 team…
