selection in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and also
excelled in his NHL rookie season scoring 12 goals
in 54 games. He began the season with Adirondack
and scored a hat trick on October 14, 2011 against
Bridgeport. His first NHL goal came on the league's
biggest stage at the NHL Winter Classic on January
2, 2012 against the New York Rangers.
Erik Gustafsson, Ben Holmstrom, Brandon Manning,
Zac Rinaldo, Eric Wellwood and Harry Zolnierczyk
all played with Philadelphia last season while
Danny Syvret has played with the Flyers prior
