Friedman: “Yes, so Jay O’Brien was a first-round pick, 19th total in2018 The Flyers as well as the gamer needed to choose to authorize. I have actually listened to that the choice has actually been made.
The Flyers will certainly not authorize him which enables O’Brien to evaluate cost-free company. He’s 23 years of ages. He can pick which company he intends to bet.
The Flyers therefore will certainly obtain a second-round pick in the upcoming draft. But O’Brien will certainly not be a Flyer.

“I kind of group players into two groups. They’re either drivers or they’re passengers. And he’s a driver,” Woodcroft claimed Wednesday in a phone meeting with NBCSports Philadelphia “He’s a 210-foot gamer, which suggests he’s not restricted to simply the 200 feet. Like, he will certainly undergo the wall surfaces, he plays so well in between the dots. He’s a capturing danger as well as he’s a protective danger.
“I didn’t even know what his goals were because I didn’t even really care. I was surprised, they were lower than I thought they would be. But B.U. has 16 elite forwards.”
O’Brien began at Providence, after that left for Penticton of the BCHL for a year, after that on Boston University for 3 years.
Woodcroft contrasts O’Brien to a right-handed Scott Laughton.
