Scott Laughton is seeing time on the second line with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.

This is a great spot to be in as the Flyers do have good scoring wingers on their top two lines. Laughton is establishing himself in the NHL although he has only two assists in 12 games this season. He could be worth a flier in deeper leagues as he has shown in the past that he is capable of scoring. "He skated well," said coach Craig Berube. "I think he’s pretty much skated well every game he’s played in. He does good stuff out there and adds energy, his skating ability and attack mentality. ... He has things to learn and he will as it goes along."

Scott Laughton played well on Friday in the Flyers 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

Laughton gave a good accounting of himself Friday as he had three shots on net and was strong defensively. He has yet to pick up a point in 11 career games but the former number one pick by the Flyers should start scoring in the near future.

Scott Laughton led the way with six hits on Saturday.

Laughton was recalled on Tuesday and has made a great impression thus far as he started out on the fourth line and has moved up to third line minutes as he played 15:01 on Saturday against the Blue Jackets. He has no points in three NHL games this season and has yet to get a point in eight career NHL games but the points will come soon. He is worth a flier in deep pools.

Scott Laughton has impressed the Flyers in his first two games since his recall on Tuesday.

Laughton started on the fourth line and moved up to center the third unit on Thursday between Vincent Lecavalier and R.J. Umberger. "I thought Laughton played really well," coach Craig Berube said. "He skated, competed, and had a heavy stick out there."
Nov 22 - 10:26 AM

Scott Laughton is slated to play between Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Vincent Lecavalier on Wednesday against the Rangers.

He will be making his season debut after skating in five games with the Flyers in 2012-13. "I'm definitely a little more confident now," said Laughton after Wednesday's morning skate. "Two years ago, I started during the lockout year. I was 18 years old out of junior and didn't really know what to expect ... I've played a couple exhibition games, and playing pro hockey for 12 or 13 games was good for me."

Scott Laughton was recalled on Tuesday night.

No official comment by the club has been made yet, but he was recalled after the Flyers loaned the Phantoms centerman Blair Jones.
Nov 18 - 7:59 PM

The injury to Michael Raffl will not lead to the Flyers recalling Scott Laughton, according to GM Ron Hextall.

Hextall thinks Laughton is better served by developing in the minors for now. The 20-year-old forward has five goals and seven points in nine AHL games in 2014-15.
Nov 6 - 9:29 AM

Scott Laughton has four goals in three AHL games this season.

The Flyers sent Laughton to the minors in the belief that it would be better for his development, but it wouldn't be shocking if they end up promoting him in the not too distant future. The 20-year-old would be worth keeping an eye on if the Flyers do summon him.
Oct 20 - 9:01 AM

Scott Laughton has been assigned to the minors.

The move was expected as it will give him more playing time. It will mark his rookie season in the AHL and he could be a potential call-up for the Flyers during the year.
Oct 1 - 5:19 PM

Do not be surprised if the Philadelphia Flyers send Scott Laughton to the minors.

Barring an injury or two, Laughton will be best served by playing a lot of minutes in the minors rather than languishing in the press box at the NHL level as he is likely the 14th forward at this time. The talented center will make the club in the next couple of seasons but now is the time to get in some minor league action and experience.

Coach Craig Berube is impressed thus far with the play of Scott Laughton in training camp.

Laughton could still use some time in the minors as he is only 20, but he could get another look see as Pierre-Edouard Bellemare is out with an injury. "He’s a good positional player," Berube said. "Strong out there. Skates well for a kid. He’s done a lot of good things."
Sep 27 - 10:20 AM

Scott Laughton notched a goal and two assists in the Flyers' 4-0 preseason win over the Devils on Thursday night, finishing the game at +1 with four shots and two hits in 16:54 of ice time.

Laughton and the Flyers fired 32 shots on the Devils, with starter Cory Schneider looking a bit shaky in the preseason tuneup. Laughton is on a mission to make the Flyers after four standout seasons in the OHL. Jakub Voracek also posted a solid game for Philadelphia with two assists.
Sep 25 - 9:43 PM

Scott Laughton thinks he's ready to make the jump to the NHL this season, but he's also trying to temper his expectations.

"I think I'm ready, but a lot of kids say that when they come in, and sometimes it doesn't work out," he said. "Whatever happens, happens. I'm ready for any situation they put me in." The 20-year-old forward may be better served playing a full season in the minors, especially because the Flyers have plenty of options down the middle. Laughton will be a key player to watch at Philadelphia's rookie camp this weekend before attending the main team's training camp next week.
Sep 11 - 12:04 PM

Scott Laughton might have a tough time making the Philadelphia Flyers' opening game lineup in 2014.

The Flyers are deep up the middle with Claude Giroux, Vincent Lecavalier, Brayden Schenn, and Sean Couturier. It's possible that Laughton might be used as a winger, but there still wouldn't be much room for him. He might benefit from a campaign in the AHL anyways after scoring 40 goals and 87 points in 54 OHL contests in 2013-14.
