The Philadelphia Flyers are falling in the standings, but they is a glimmer of hope because some of the younger players are developing.

Take Cam York, for instance.

In a small sample size, York, who turned 21 last week, is making good use of his opportunity with the Flyers.

Thrust into action because of injuries and illnesses, 5-foot-11, 175-pound defenseman has played well since being recalled  from the AHL’s Phantoms. He has received more time than any Flyer over the last two games.

“A guy comes in and he’s got to perform, and he’s got to accept that opportunity — and he’s done that,” interim coach Mike Yeo said after the Flyers’ 3-2 overtime loss Saturday to visiting San Jose. “He helped us score a big power-play goal, but I think it’s a real hard league, and the toughest thing for young players is just learning that consistency and being ready to compete and perform at a real high level every night.”
