3 Philadelphia Flyers Set for Breakout Campaigns in 2013-14 Season

If the pattern continues, the Philadelphia Flyers will enjoy a breakout campaign from a young forward in the 2013-2014 season.

In each of the past two seasons, the Philadelphia Flyers have had a breakout season from a young forward. For the 2011-12 season, it was Claude Giroux, who made the leap to superstar status.

Then during the lockout-shortened 2013 season, Jakub Voracek took a major step forward and could rival Giroux from a production standpoint in the future.

But the Flyers are a team full of talented young forwards, and there are a few others who are primed to follow in Giroux and Voracek's footsteps and break out in the upcoming season. 

I considered a few defensemen for this list, including Erik Gustafsson and Luke Schenn, but I don't see either player approaching "elite" status next season.
