Flyers Recall Laughton

News: Scott Laughton was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.
Analysis: With Claude Giroux (lower body) expected to miss at least the next two games, Scott Laughton, one of the Flyers' top forward prospects, will join the big club to give the team some more offensive firepower. The 20-year-old has six goals and 11 points over 13 games with Lehigh Valley.

Flyers' Laughton Sent To AHL Lehigh Valley

News: Scott Laughton was assigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: The former first-round pick had a strong preseason thus far, but his performance was not enough to make the final roster. Scott Laughton is held in high regard as a prospect in the Flyers' system, and he's still young enough to stay in the AHL for the year to develop his skills further. Barring injury, he won't see much playing time in the NHL this year since the Flyers seem rather settled at center, but keeper league owners should still give him a look.

Flyers Laughton Tallies Three Points

News: Scott Laughton scored and collected two assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Scott Laughton is trying to cement a spot on the NHL roster, and performances like this certainly help. At 20, he's still young enough for the Flyers to stash him in the AHL for a development season. The former first-round pick is a natural center, and the Flyers are currently overstaffed at that position. For owners in keeper leagues, he's worth a look. Owners in other formats should let the preseason progress before making any moves.

Laughton Scores Two In Win

News: Scott Laughton potted two goals Saturday en route to OHL Oshawa's 4-2 win over Owen Sound.
Analysis: Scott Laughton now has 35 points -- 17 goals, 18 assists -- in just 19 games. He's on a freakish tear at the junior level, and is worth a look in dynasty leagues even if he doesn't make a return to the Flyers' NHL roster this season.

Flyers Send Laughton To Juniors

News: Scott Laughton was assigned to OHL Oshawa by the Flyers on Thursday, the Philadelphia Daily News' Frank Seravalli reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton seemed to have surprisingly made the opening day roster for the Flyers at 19 years old. It's uncertain whether he'll return to the majors at some point, but for now, the promising young center will work on developing in juniors.

Flyers' Laughton Wins Roster Spot

News: Scott Laughton has secured an Opening Night roster spot with the Flyers, CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: With the placement of veteran winger Adam Hall on waivers Saturday, the Flyers unofficially committed to playing the 19-year-old Scott Laughton for at least nine games, as his junior eligibility won't kick in until after that time. The Flyers would then have to decide whether to send Laughton to OHL Oshawa or keep him with the big club, but if he continues to shine as he did in the final two preseason games, the decision will be an easy one. Laughton isn't expected to be a major contributor for the Flyers this season, but should become a top-six player in due time.

Laughton In Contention For Roster Spot

News: Scott Laughton is still in contention for one of the Flyers' two remaining forward spots, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Analysis: Scott Laughton is competing against Michael Raffl, an offensively savvy European import, and Chris VandeVelde, a 26-year-old who's spent most of his career in the AHL. The Flyers need a left winger, a more natural position for Raffl, so the battle is really to see whether VandeVelde or Laughton will be a better backup center. With Laughton still just 19, the Flyers may decide that VandeVelde is a less risky choice. If you're looking at Laughton in a dynasty league, stay tuned.

Flyers' Laughton Likely A Junior

News: Scott Laughton, who played five games for the Flyers last season, is expected to return to his junior team this coming season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Flyers already have 12 forwards under contract, including a bevy of centers, so Laughton faces a numbers game at the NHL level.
Analysis: Scott Laughton got a taste of the professional leagues last season, but at 19-years-old, he remains eligible for the juniors. He had 56 points and was a plus-22 in 49 games for Oshawa (OHL) last season. Considered strong in his own end, Laughton needs to work on his around-the-net game.

Flyers' GM Thinks Laughton Will Vie For Roster Spot

News: Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren thinks Scott Laughton, 18, will be ready to compete for a roster spot in September, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. "That wouldn't surprise me, either. He dominated at his level at times. And that's encouraging," the GM said.
Analysis: Scott Laughton, who totaled 56 points in 49 games for Oshawa in the OHL, had a couple of stints with the Flyers during the regular season, so he's been introduced to life in the NHL. While Holmgren was reluctant to spell out potential roster changes for next season, we do expect some turnover. It would not be a surprise to see Laughton land a job on the third or fourth line when the 2013-14 season drops.

Flyers Recall Laughton

News: The Flyers recalled Scott Laughton from AHL Adirondack on Monday.
Analysis: The 18-year-old center played mostly in the OHL this season, where he racked up 56 points in 49 games for the Oshawa Generals, but he was able to add one goal and two assists for the Phantoms late in the season.

Flyers' Prospect Laughton Scores First Professional Goal

News: Scott Laughton scored his first goal as a professional Saturday night, a shorthanded tally for AHL Adirondack, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton, who opened the season with the Flyers before heading back to his junior team, has points in each of his first two games in the AHL. He's not an elite NHL prospect, but should be in the mix for a job on the Flyers next season. He plays a sound two-way game and could hook on as a third-line center, with potential to develop scoring skills.

Flyers' Laughton Debuts In AHL

News: Scott Laughton, the Flyers' first-round draft pick and 20th overall in 2012, made his AHL debut Friday night for Adirondack, the Phantoms' official site reports. He joined the Phantoms after his junior team, the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, were eliminated from the OHL playoffs.
Analysis: Scott Laughton, who had 56 points and 23 goals in 49 games for Oshawa, centered Adirondack's top line and was the Phantom's leader in ice time. He picked up his first point (an assist) and was named the game's third star. With turnover expected in Philadelphia this coming offseason, Laughton should generate some buzz leading up to training camp.

Flyers' Laughton Returned To Junior Team

News: Scott Laughton will return to his junior team, the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, the Flyers' official Twitter page reports.
Analysis: If Scott Laughton had played six games at the NHL level this season, the first year of his entry-level contract would have been used up. Instead, the Flyers sent him down after five games, and it seems the club's content to let their 2012 first-round pick develop in the OHL for now.

Laughton Makes Flyers' Roster

News: The Flyers' first round selection has made his way onto the 23-man roster, according to CSNPHILLY.com .
Analysis: Unless Scott Laughton really impresses, this could be a short stint for the 18-year-old. Danny Briere (wrist), the injured player whose roster spot he is supposedly taking, may only miss a couple games. If Laughton plays more than five games this season it counts as one year on his contract. Taking all of that into account and the fact that what he really needs at this point is ice time, may mean a quick return to the juniors.

Flyers' Laughton Turns Heads

News: Scott Laughton's play in training camp may earn him a spot to start the season, Philly.com reports.
Analysis: The Flyers can play Scott Laughton five games without having it count as a year toward his contract. Couple that with the fact that Danny Briere may miss the start of the season due to injury and the 18-year-old may be able to play his way onto the roster.
