Top Moments: Jake Voracek Season in Review

Another 20-goal season in the books, Voracek remains consistent

by Brian Born | Contributor @nhlflyers

After 605 games and eight years in Philadelphia, Jake Voracek has proven to be a consistent piece of the Flyers core. Since joining the Flyers in 2011, Voracek has eclipsed the 20-goal mark six times, matching that total in each of the past three seasons. Following the departure of Wayne Simmonds, Voracek became an alternate captain for the Flyers as one of its established leaders in the locker room.

Check out some of Jake Voracek's top moments from the 2018-19 season below.

Jake hit multiple milestones this season, including 400 assists, 600 points and 800 career NHL games played. He'll enter the 2019-2020 season just five goals shy of 200 for his NHL career.

Recording his first-career five-point (2g-3a) in a victory over the Sens was more than enough to earn Voracek the Helmet (which made its first appearance on social media following the win).

Dangles and angles

Filthy dangles or tough angles don't really matter to Jake. He'll score either way.

These are the brakes

Voracek measures up at 6'2" and 215lbs, making his ability to put the brakes on and slide the puck by Jacob Markstrom even more impressive.
