RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Laughton put up decent numbers in the OHL last season--56 points in just 49 games. He's a former first-round draft pick who could sneak into the NHL this season. He's still young (19), however, and he's likely to start the season in the AHL, where he'll have to prove himself worthy of an NHL call-up.
Laughton spent the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons with Oshawa in the OHL, posting 23 and 53 points, respectively. The Flyers drafted the 6-foot, two-way center significantly higher than projected, showing a lot of faith in Laughton’s skill. He’s unlikely to see time with the Flyers this season, but once he has some professional experience under his belt he could prove worthy of his first round pick.
