Philadelphia Flyers fans have plenty to be excited about but the most exciting part of the organization is the promise and development of their youth. Between Matvei Michkov and Cutter Gautheir, the Flyers look like they have found two superstars with their last two top picks.

Earlier today the 2022 fifth overall pick Cutter Gautheir shined for Team USA as they defeated Sweeden in a pre-tournament game at World Junior's. Gauthier was by far the best player offensively for team USA as he notched two goals and an assist.


The former Boston College star played for team USA last year at the World Juniors and his return this year is a big part in him being named an alternate captain for team USA.



Between Michkov and Gauthier, the Flyers potentially have two players who can flat out score. The promising growth of their young talent is a refreshing feeling for Philadelphia fans.
