With the 2021 NHL Draft fast approaching, the NHL’s Central Scouting department has released its list of Players to Watch as an early preview of what to expect in the draft. Flyers Elite alums are well represented with five players on the list!
Tyler Boucher, currently committed to Boston University, is listed as a “B” prospect, projecting him as a potential 2nd or 3rd round pick.
Four Flyers Elite alums are listed as “C” prospects, including Matt Argentina (committed to Boston College), Kenny Connors (committed to UMass), Sam Lipken (committed to Quinnipiac) and Sean Melso (currently uncommitted). A “C” level prospect is projected to be a potential 4th, 5th, or 6th round pick.
