History

2012-13: Kyle Flanagan signed a one-year entry-level contract with the Flyers in March 2013 following his senior season at Saint Lawrence and made his pro debut with Philadelphia's AHL affiliate in Adirondack. In 13 games with the Phantoms he scored 1 goal with 6 assists and had an even plus/minus with 4 penalty minutes. Adirondack missed the playoffs after finishing last in the Northeast Division. Flanagan was the second-leading scorer for the Saints, trailing only 28-goal scorer Greg Carey, in his final season of college hockey. He scored 15 goals and tied for the team lead with 32 assists while finishing +1 with 40 penalty minutes in 34 games. St. Lawrence tied for fifth in ECAC Hockey and lost to eventual national champion Yale in the playoff quarterfinals.

A disappointing 2012-13 season for the Flyers has left an awkward situation in Philadelphia heading into the offseason. The struggles of the team seem to go hand-in-hand with the struggles of goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. Meanwhile, former Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky recently won a Vezina Trophy with the Columbus Blue Jackets, less than a year removed from being traded out of Philadelphia.

While the Philadelphia Flyers have not had the most dazzling prospect pool in recent NHL memory, they have had a steady amount of success from the top of their ranks. While consistently trading away first and second round picks does not provide the steadiest foundation from which to build an organization, the Flyers have had almost astonishing success making trades for high-end players who are just hitting their developmental stride.
