Entering the 2018-19 season, Flyers forward Scott Laughton had established himself as a reliable role player. Now with six seasons of pro hockey under his belt, Laughton fills the need for a third/fourth line center and stingy penalty killer who accompanies his skill with hard work, grit and a high-compete level.
The 24-year-old Ontario native had the best statistical year of his career this season, registering a career-high in goals (12), assists (20) and points (32). In addition to an increase in point production, Laughton skated in a full 82-game season for the first-time in his NHL career. The former first round pick (20th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft is currently a restricted free agent.
