The Flyers recalled center Scott Laughton from the Oshawa Generals today. The Generals season ended Wednesday night, thus making the Flyers top rated prospect available for the playoffs. Laughton had a brief five game stint with the club in the beginning of the year, but was sent back to the OHL for some seasoning.
Laughton is actually good at hockey. Unlike say, Zac Rinaldo. So it will be a small story to follow to see if Craig Berube inserts his blue chip prospect into the lineup in this series. He could just be a ‘Black Ace’, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he dresses for a game. Because you know, Rinaldo is bad at hockey.
