The Philadelphia Flyers were in a playoff position most of the 2023-2024 season and during most of that time, they had Sean Walker and Nick Seeler paired together on the same line. On the same day the Flyers traded Walker to the Avalanche, Seeler was placed on injured reserve. With both players out of the lineup, the Flyers went 4-5-2 and allowed four goals a game and 10 power play goals during that span. The Flyers struggled without them.

With seven games remaining in the season and the Flyers making a playoff push, Seeler and Jamie Drysdale were paired together. When Seeler was asked about Drysdale at his end of season press conference, he stated "He's a heck of a player and he has the ability to skate up the ice and move the puck really well, I think we'll mesh well here."
Drysdale is seen as a plus skater and puck mover but has had issues staying healthy throughout his career and he was injured in his first season with the Flyers.
At first, this pairing had its struggles as it was a combined minus 11 in a 9-3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens but only allowed two goals in the final three games of the season. Their struggles to start as linemates could make sense as they were both coming off injuries and were newly linemates. Next year, we can truly see how they will play together as they will both be healthy and playing together in a full season.
