The Philadelphia Flyers have had many young players show growth this season, including Owen Tippett, Noah Cates, Cam York, and Morgan Frost.

Cates did well in a brief stint with the Flyers late last season. The others are former first-round draft picks, so their improvement isn’t exactly shocking.

So I’d put this as the most pleasant surprise of the Flyers’ season: The emergence of goaltender Sam Ersson.

Drafted by then-general manager Ron Hextall in the fifth round in 2018 (No. 143 overall), Ersson has exceeded all expectations.
