    Awesome, he will be a solid bottom sixer for us who can score and play a solid 2-way game. Everyone thought the Flyers weren't going to get this deal done.

      Are we still needing to sign Wade Allison? How about that dman who was sent back to the WHL (is it Wyatt Willie)?

        Another good article regarding Laczynski.

        Jordan Hall confirms Allison is not yet signed (neither are Linus Hogberg and David Bernhardt...two forgotten Swedish dmen).

          Good to get this kid inked. I have high hopes that he can become an excellent 3rd line, shut down center with a little scoring punch.... like Laughton

            Look at the Flyers draft class from that year, quite excellent.

              Just signed Allison as well. (2-yr ELC)

                Glad that this got done as well. Allison could be the sniper we've been waiting for.
