The Richards comparison is very apt, IMHO. Laughton has good "hockey sense" in all directions, and that's the first thing that stood out to me, just like Richards, when they were relatively unheralded juniors... both hustle and use every ounce at their disposal, but they also see the game well, and use that vision well in both zones.
I think I picked Laughton something like 13th in my FHL entry draft last summer, I'm a believer.
Never thought he'd be a candidate to crack the Flyers this early, mind you, but great to hear that he's showing well.
