The 2018-19 season was one that defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere would prefer to have back. After producing 66 points (13G-53A) last season, the 25-year old defenseman totaled just 37 points (9G-28A) this year, a career low. During break up day, Gostisbehere made no excuses and took ownership of his play this year vowing to be better next season.
Looking at recent seasons, there will be plenty of optimism for Gostisbehere to bounce back in a big way next year. After recording just 43 points and a -21 rating in 2016-17, the blueliner improved that total to 66 points and a +10 the following year. If Gostisbehere can repeat history, the Flyers defensive core will be much more productive.
