Updates on Where Philadelphia Flyers' 2011 Draft Picks Are Now

Monday, the Philadelphia Flyers made headlines when they shipped fan-favorite Scott Hartnell to the Columbus Blue Jackets for former Flyer R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft.

But that's hardly the most surprising predraft exchange Philly has orchestrated in recent years.

Just three years ago, the Flyers traded the two faces of their franchise, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, to Los Angeles and Columbus respectively in a move that completely overhauled the makeup of the organization. Out were two of Philadelphia's key components to the team's run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2010 and in came blossoming young forwards Jake Voracek, Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds along with the No. 8 selection in the 2011 NHL draft.

Had the Flyers not orchestrated this predraft transaction, the orange and black wouldn't have had a first-round pick for the third time in as many years and would have had to wait until the third round before making their first selection for the third time in that same span.

Instead, Philadelphia moved up into the first round in acquiring its sixth pick for that year's draft.

It's been nearly three years since that eventful draft in St. Paul, Minnesota. Here's an update on where Philly's 2011 draft picks are now.
