It looks like Flyers fans will have to wait to see Samuel Morin on a regular basis.
General manager Ron Hextall stuck with his patience plan, sending the 19-year-old defenseman prospect back to Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Friday. The Flyers also trimmed their roster down to 22 players, waiving three players in hopes they land in Lehigh Valley.
Goaltender Robb Zepp and forwards Jay Rosehill and Chris VandeVelde were all placed on waivers on Friday. They join three players sent to Lehigh on Wednesday.
The Philadelphia Flyers need to get the active roster to 23 by the start of the season.
They're at 26.
The Flyers got to that number when they sent center Scott Laughton and defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere to Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Both, who were top candidates to start the season with the Flyers, will start in Lehigh.
The Flyers also waived veteran Zack Stortini. If he isn't picked up, he will join Laughton and Gostisbehere in Lehigh.
In the previous four previews, The TCL Flyers team delved into the players who will absolutely make an impact on the Flyers this season.
In the final chapter of this series, I will go into six players who I think will have an impact on this season, whether it be in the juniors or if they get called up to the Flyers some time this season.
I present to you the starting line up of the TCL Flyers Future Team:
