Like many of the Flyers (and the team in general), the 2018-19 season had its streaky moments for Nolan Patrick. The 20-year-old entered his second season coming off a 13G-17A-30PTS rookie campaign with the goal of improving his all-around game.
Patrick, a promising piece of the young core being built in Philadelphia, followed up his first pro season by matching his goal total and improving his assist total to 18. This year, Patrick was frequently shuffled around the lineup, getting experience skating on all four lines and the role changes that comes with each. Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher remains optimistic that the 2017 number two overall draft selection will take the next step in his growth and emerge into a top centerman in the organization. "Nolan has the capability of being a #2 center-man. Whether that's next year, time will tell," Fletcher said when discussing Patrick's future.
