Observations:

 

Scott Laughton

Oct 20th, 2014- Laughton has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending October 19th. He scored four12 first roun goals in his first two games including two on the powerplay and one shorthanded Zach Hopkins

 

Oct 2014- Perhaps the only forward prospect with fantasy relevance this season (other than Jason Akeson), the 2012 first round pick was sent down to Lehigh Valley where he will likely play with Taylor Leier. The duo looked good together in rookie and training camp and Laughton will likely get called up to Philadelphia if a problem should arise down the middle Zach Hopkins

 

May 2014 - Scott Laughton was named to the OHL's 1st All-Star Team after leading his team in goals (40) and finishing second in points (87). After playing four years of junior hockey, it is expected that Laughton will compete for a roster spot when Flyers open camp in the fall. Expect Laughton to be phased into the lineup playing both in defensive and offensive situations. Brendan Ross

 

December 2013 - Scott Laughton is one of 13 forwards selected to the Canadian Under-20 World Junior roster for the upcoming Championships in Malmo, Sweden. The Flyers 2012 1st rounder will also serve as Canada's captain and will be leaned on to provide both offence and shutdown the opponents top line defensively. Brendan Ross

 

November 2013 – Scott Laughton of the Oshawa Generals was named to the OHL roster for the 2013 SUBWAY Super Series. The Flyers prospect has 25 points through 13 games this season placing him second in team scoring. Brendan Ross

 

October 2013 - After being re-assigned to the Oshawa Generals, Scott Laughton's OHL season debut was nothing short of spectacular scoring three times and recording nine points in three wins. Laughton was named OHL Player of the Week for the week ending October 6th, 2013. Brendan Ross

 

 

October 2013 - The Philadelphia Flyers have reassigned Scott Laughton to the OHL's Oshawa Generals team. Brendan Ross

 

 

October 2013 - According to the Philadelphia Flyers opening night roster, Scott Laughton has earned himself a spot in the NHL. He is still eligible to be returned to the juniors, so his first nine games may once again be more of a “tryout”. Flyers will re-evaluate his position at that point. Jenn Lardani

 


April 2013 - The April recall party for the Philadelphia Flyers continues as they’ve decided to call up a few more prospects, including centremen Scott Laughton.  With just three games left in the season the Flyers are going to test out their youth, unfortunately for Laughton he already played five games for the big club earlier in the season.  This means that, well, unless the Flyers want to burn the first year of his contract to see him play a game or two, Laughton’s call up is simply for experience.  But it’s still a shot of confidence to the Oakville, Ontario native, as it shows he’ll contest for a roster spot in September.  Laughton and his Oshawa Generals were swept in the second round of the OHL playoffs by the Barrie Colts. Nathan Martin

 

 

February 2013 - Looks like Laughton's Cup of tea with the Flyers woke up his offence. Since being sent back to junior, Laughton has been on an absolute tear (for Oshawa, OHL) riding an eight-game point streak, notching 16 points in seven games since his return. If the Flyers weren't already impressed with his play on his recall they will be thrilled to see his offence coming along now. - Travis Watson

 

January 2013 – Laughton was sent back to Oshawa to continue to dominate at the OHL level. Despite not scoring any points he did create opportunities and put ten shots on the net. The coaching staff and ‘experts’ have raved at how well he did play and how bright his future is for the Flyer organization. Jason Banks

 

October 2012 - Scott Laughton has been suspended 10 games for a check to the head. Brendan Ross

 

October 2012 - Scott Laughton was named to the 2012 Subway Super Series Team OHL Roster slated to compete in a six-game series versus the Russian National Junior Team in November. Brendan Ross

 

June, 2012 - Not surprisingly, Scott Laughton goes earlier than most expected after the Flyers used their 19th overall pick to select this versatile hard working character forward, a player that fits perfectly within the Flyers' organization. - Brendan Ross -

 

May 2012–The Oshawa Generals third overall pick in the 2010 OHL priority selection, Laughton is a great two way center that wins faceoffs and kill penalties as well as being a great powerplay asset. Laughton cycles the puck in the offensive zone very well and pressures the opposing defensemen on the forechecks effectively. He also has a great shot from the slot that beats goaltenders in all corners which complements his playmaking skills. Laughton has to improve his foot speed and his puck handling in tight areas. Laughton has great acceleration but his overall skating needs work which can be helped by a better stride. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

Potential to be a great third-line responsible two-way center at the NHL level with second-line upside
