FLYERS RELOAD FOR 2025 DRAFT, WHICH FIGURES TO BE STRONGER!

By Jenny Masters

The Flyers flipped their 32nd overall pick, acquired in 2022 as part of the Claude Giroux trade.

In return, the Flyers received a conditional 2025 first-rounder, which if it’s within the top 12, will slide to 2026.

The Flyers could have three first-round selections in next year’s draft, having also acquired a first-round pick in the Sean Walker trade.

This move comes after the Flyers dropped back one spot from the No. 12 pick to also acquire a third-rounder from the Minnesota Wild in next year’s draft. With the newly obtained 13th overall selection, the team drafted centerman Jett Luchanko of the Guelph Storm.

The Oilers selected London Knights center Sam O’Reilly with the final pick of the first round.

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced they will retain their 2024 second-round pick, and will send their 2025 second-rounder to Philadelphia as part of the Ivan Provorov trade.

“That’s what we assumed, that they were going to pick,” Brière said.

“But, no, what we feel is having the chance to move the pick to next year in a strong draft, and also the chance that maybe that pick is a little earlier, that’s the risk on their end as well. Could be 32, who knows, the way they played this year. But we felt it was worth the risk to move it to next year, and we can still keep talking about the [Claude] Giroux trade for a little longer.”
