Robert Hagg scored his first career goal on Wednesday.
Hagg was playing in his 35th career NHL contest. His goal proved to be critical as the Flyers went on to earn a 4-3 win over Detroit. "It’s fun, especially with a win," Hagg said. "I was just closing my eyes and hoping for the best. When I looked up and saw the puck go in, there was a lot of emotion coming out. I had few chances earlier this season, so to see that one go in feels pretty damn good." The 22-year-old defenseman isn't likely to develop into a major offensive force, but he does dish out a lot of hits. He has 117 hits in 34 contests this season. Thu, Dec 21, 2017 05:32:00 AM

Robert Hagg picked up his first NHL point on Tuesday.

It wasn't exactly the stuff of legends. Hagg blocked a shot and that led to him picking up a secondary assist on Shayne Gostisbehere's goal. "I mean, yeah, I’ll take it," Hagg said. "It’s not going to say in the newspaper how I made it, so I’ll take it." Hagg was playing in his seventh career game.

Robert Hagg has made the Philadelphia Flyers squad.

The defenseman had a fine camp and will start the season as a top-six defenseman. He was drafted in the second round in 2013 and while a good blueliner, his fantasy value is limited.

It looks like Robert Hagg is going to make the Flyers 23 man roster.

There are three rookie defensemen fighting for two spots on the Flyers defense, Hagg, Travis Sanheim and Sam Morin. Sanheim and Morin were the fourth pairing Saturday while Hagg was with Shayne Gostisbehere, a sign that Hag will make the team. The Flyers second round pick in 2013, Hagg had seven goals and 15 points in 56 AHL games last season with Lehigh Valley. He does not have a lot of upside fantasy wise at this time.

Robert Hagg has an excellent opportunity to make the Flyers this season.

The defenseman has been playing with either Ivan Provorov or Shayne Gostisbehere during training camp and that's not too shabby as they are the Flyers top two defensemen especially offensively. "I don't mind it. Let them do their job and I'm taking care of the defense, kind of what I did last year, as well. Start getting used to it and I don't have any problems with it. I think my best game is in the D-zone, shutting down guys, 1-on-1 battles. And then sure, I can follow up in the game and find some pucks here and there. But my main focus is to be good in the D-zone, take care of that and the rest will take care of itself." Don't expect a lot offensively from Hagg.

Flyers prospect Robert Hagg enjoys the smaller ice surfaces in North America more than the larger surfaces he played in in his native Sweden.

"It is more fun to play here than in Sweden," Hagg said. "You can grab the forwards much easier in the corner. It’s much more physical. Plus, you can make one good pass and have a good scoring chance. In Sweden, it takes four or five passes. The smaller ice makes the game a little bit faster. You have to more fully concentrate on every shift. There is going to be a goal (against) if you are going to just skate around out there." Hagg made a good impression on the Flyers' braintrust when he played for the team's AHL affiliate in Adirondack last season for 10 games. "He played like a really well-rounded defenseman," said Terry Murray, who coached Hagg at Adirondack and will again this season as the Flyers move the team to Lehigh Valley. "He showed a good defensive stick and reads the play well while showing good strength. He made a lot of good plays, not flashy, just efficient."
