Bill Meltzer confirmed a report that the Flyers have signed a one-year entry level contract with Swedish defenseman Robert Hagg.
Hagg will join the Adirondack Pantoms for the remainder of the season, and his contract will start next season. Hagg is considered by many as one of the top prospects in Philadelphia's system, and arguably the best defenseman.
The 2014 World Junior Championships have come and gone.
Finland captured gold on January 5 to win the tournament for players under the age of 20. The host team, Sweden, fell to Finland 3-2 to settle for silver.
Russia defeated Canada to take home bronze. Canada and the United States, two favorites, went home with nothing.
The World Juniors are exciting to watch for the international hockey fan in everyone each year. But whether you have an allegiance to a certain nation or not, it can still be a good time to get familiar with top young prospects.
