NHL Daily: Flyers’ Prospect Soaring; Bo Horvat Trade Talk

Published

on

Cutter Gauthier, Philadelphia Flyers
Center Cutter Gauthier has been as good as advertised when the Flyers took him fifth overall in the 2022 NHL draft.

The Philadelphia Flyers’ top prospect, Cutter Gauthier, is filling the nets for Boston College. Meanwhile, a guy who is adept from keeping pucks out of the nets, Boston’s Jeremy Swayman, is close to returning.

It’s hard to imagine Swayman doing a better job than Linus Ullmark for the 14-2 Bruins, who face the Flyers on Thursday.

Switching gears, the Islanders are playing great hockey, and a deal for Vancouver center Bo Horvat could make them Cup contenders. (Horvat, 27, who has 14 goals in 17 games, should also be on the Flyers’ radar.)

These stories, and many others from around the league, are in our NHL links below.
