While Laughton has continued to be the go-to performer, Nick Cousins showed the most improvement, bouncing back from a struggling year. Brandon Manning exceeded expectations, earning another call up to the Flyers. Meanwhile, goaltender Anthony Stolarz has struggled in his first professional year. Read more»

With his first regular season of AHL hockey now completed, Robert Hagg will have 79 AHL games under his belt (including 10 games from 2013-14).
