2016 NHL draft day 2: Tracking all of the Flyers' picks


UPDATED: 1:25 p.m.

After drafing German Rubtsov in the first round Friday night, the Flyers had a busy Saturday in Rounds 2-7 of the NHL draft at First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.

The Flyers also acquired the 120th pick from the Arizona Coyotes as part of the trade last summer that sent Chris Pronger's contract and Nicklas Grossmann to the Coyotes, but later traded the pick to the New York Islanders for a 2017 fourth-round pick.

Here are all of the Flyers' Day 2 draft picks:

Second round

No. 36: Pascal Laberge, C, 6-1/172, Victoriaville (QMJHL)
Laberge can play both center and wing and finished as No. 28 on Central Scouting's final North American skater rankings. The 18-year-old scored 23 goals and 68 points in 56 games for the Tigres last season, and added two goals and an assist in the CHL Top Prospects game in January. Laberge wrote about his journey to the NHL on the Players' Tribune this week.

No. 48: Carter Hart, G, 6-0/180, Everett (WHL)
Hart became the first goalie drafted in the 2016 draft, making it the longest wait for a netminder to be picked since 1986. The goalie finished No. 2 on Central Scouting's final North American goalie rankings after posting a 2.14 goals-against average with the Silvertips. The Flyers began a goalie run in the second round, as four goalies went after the orange and black selected Hart at No. 48.

Allison finished No. 62 on Central Scouting's final North American skater rankings. Playing for the Tri-City Storm in 2015-16, Allison, a big power forward, scored 25 goals and 47 points in 56 games. He's committed to play college hockey at Western Michigan University in the fall.

Third round
