Scott Laughton's return will be ???

Post by Gens Camper on Sat Sep 28, 2013 4:12 pm

Will Scott be back for our Sunday opener ???? - It is possible as the Flyers are set to name the roster today or Sunday

The Flyers would likely return Scott for another year of Junior - as it makes no sense to keep him  and play 4 th line 6 minutes a game

The Flyers are in a rebuilding mode and will likely miss the playoffs again , Tim Thomas was available instead they have 2 back up goalies

This is not the place to build confidence for young players

It is now on the fan forum that Scott has made the team - at least for 9 games - the team still has 1 cut to go

Not sure why the Flyers feel he is ready - it must be a cap issue - Great news for the player in the short term


But this hurts long term develpment

I read today that the Flyers are likely going to keep Chris VanVelde over Laughton. Mainly because they want to keep Laughton at his natural position of Center and there are no openings in the top 9 at that position. The flyers are also working on a deal with the Coloardo Avalanche where they would acquire a forward for a defensemen.

Laughton will be back this season, it's just a matter of if its by Sunday or if he gets his 9 games with the Flyers. If he sticks for 9 he should return for the Oct 25th game vs Mississauga which would be the 12th generals game of the season.

Laughton was named to the Flyers Roster today.

VanVelde was sent to the AHL

That's not to say that it sticks, as this will be re-evaluated after 9 nhl games.

That hurts, I wish they'd just send him back now. I see no point in them keeping him as a 4th line center playing 8-9 minutes a game, maybe an outside shot of some PK time. I think it only furthers his development being a top line center in the OHL, playing a big role on Team Canada, an possibly a long OHL playoff run.

Thanks for the update though archer_gens. Its funny how different sites report different things. So called experts eh lol

The thing in VanVelde makes more sense for the Flyers, however, they can't do it the other way around, keep VanVelde for a while and then call Laughton up.

So for now we wait.

Flyers announce they've sent Forward Scott Laughton back to the OHL's Oshawa Generals without playing a game. Kris Newbury has been recalled from the AHL to be the 13th forward. Laughton is expected to return in time to suite up tonight for the Generals as they take on their arch rival Peterborough Petes.

Press release I read on twitter. However I've only seen the one saying he'll be dressing tonight.

This is great news that Scott returning for now as I don't think he will be in a Gen's uniform after the trade deadline.

Scott 's return

Post by Gens Camper on Thu Oct 03, 2013 4:28 pm

This is Great news for all GENS fans and all OHL fans  - as we all love to see the top players put the skill out there for us to see.

Scott is a great leader and player that will help many of the rookies on our team.

As far as trades go - let's not go down that road right now as no player is un tradeable

Let us enjoy the fact we have someone to fill a huge void right now - that is leadership and goal scoring

Scott as a 19 yr old and is more mature and ready to move up to that next level - the sky is his limit

Welcome back Scott
