For the first time in a long time, the Philadelphia Flyers are developing with youth.
Seven of the team's regular forwards, including captain Claude Giroux and offensive dynamos Jake Voracek, Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn, are all 25 years or younger. Meanwhile, defenders Braydon Coburn, Nicklas Grossmann, Erik Gustafsson and Luke Schenn are all under the age of 29 while standout goaltender Steve Mason is just 25.
But what's most encouraging for the Orange and Black is that this team has even more young talent in the pipeline, including several skaters who were recently on display in the 2014 World Junior Championships.
Here's a look at how each of Philadelphia's participating prospects performed in the recent showcase.
