Former Philadelphia Flyers forward Nolan Patrick reportedly was not given a qualifying offer by the Vegas Golden Knights and is a free agent.

The news was reported by The Sporting Tribune and CapFriendly.

Patrick’s story is well known in Philadelphia. The Flyers selected Patrick with the second overall pick in 2017 draft. Patrick was expected to infuse the Flyers with scoring and physical play. In his first two seasons, he only missed 21 games and showed promise with 26 goals and 35 assists.

Instead, what unfolded was a sad story of injuries, concussions and migraine issues. Patrick has dealt with migraine disorder since 2019.

Of a possible 466 regular-season games over six seasons, Patrick played only 222. He didn’t play this past season for Vegas. He also sat out the 2019-20 season with the Flyers.

Patrick, 24, played 197 games over four seasons with the Flyers and scored 30 goals and 40 assists. Patrick scored one goal and one assist in his only playoff appearance — 2018 in an Eastern Conference quarterfinal loss to the Penguins.

He was traded in July 2021 with Philippe Myers to the Predators for defenseman Ryan Ellis. Nashville then traded Patrick to Vegas for forward Cody Glass.

Patrick played 25 games over two seasons for the Golden Knights. He scored two goals and five assists. His career totals: 222 games played, 32 goals and 45 assists.

According to CapFriendly, Patrick has signed three contracts worth $13,999,125 in his career.

Patrick’s future is uncertain, given his injury history. It’s unknown if another team will take a chance on him.
