Flyers Potential Draft Targets
With the 11th overall pick in the NHL draft, the Flyers will have a lot of top end talent to choose from. Here are some of the players that might hear their name called by Paul Holmgren come draft day.
Rasmus Ristolainen, D, TPS, SM-Liiga
Ristolainen is the most NHL-ready d-man in this draft besides Seth Jones. Playing the past two seasons in SM-liiga, Finland’s top league, Ristolainen knows what it takes to play with men. He isn’t a flashy player by any means but is extremely sound defensively. He’s a good skater who is still trying to find his offensive game, which some scouts say has been coming along. Ristolainen is a pretty safe bet to become a decent NHLer, but he may need another season in Finland or the AHL before making the jump.
Darnell Nurse, D, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, OHL
Josh Morrisey, D, Prince Albert, WHL
Anthony Mantha, RW, Val d’Or, QMJHL
Hunter Shinkaruk, LW, Medicine Hat, WHL
If Risto and Nurse are gone I'm hoping we go with a winger in Mantha or Shinkaruk.
