News:The Sports Xchange reports the Flyers will give top defensive prospect Kevin Marshall a long look at training camp. If Marshall plays well, he could bump veteran Randy Jones and his $2.75 million cap hit into the minors.
Analysis: A second-round pick in 2007, Marshall completed his junior career last season with nine goals and 29 assists, along with 125 penalty minutes. If the Flyers think Marshall need some more seasoning in the minors, they are likely to go with Chris Pronger, Kimmo Timonen, Braydon Coburn, Matt Carle, Ryan Parent and Jones as their top six blue-liners. Marshall is more than a long-term Fantasy keeper, but if he makes the roster out of training camp, he could be a rookie sleeper for deeper formats.
News: The Flyers signed defenseman Kevin Marshall to a entry-level contract Wednesday. "Kevin is a good, solid prospect and we are happy to have him under contract," Flyers GM Paul Holmgren told NHL.com. "I was surprised a little bit, but happy," Marshall said. "At the end of last season, I practiced with the (Philadelphia) Phantoms (AHL). They said that they liked my work ethic. They were thinking about it (signing Marshall to a contract), but I was thinking that they have another year to sign me. When my agent called me, I was very happy because it shows me that they think that I am a good prospect for the Flyers, which makes me very proud."
Analysis: Marshall, 19, recorded 11 goals, 24 assists and 143 penalty minutes in 66 regular season games for Lewiston of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2007-08. He was second on the team in penalty minutes and was first among defensemen in goals. He will play this upcoming season for the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL. He was selected by the Flyers in the second round (41st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. Marshall is nothing more than a long-term Fantasy keeper.
