It is starting to appear that the Philadelphia Flyers will draft a forward in the 2013 NHL Draft at the end of the month. Not only because that is the organizations M.O., but also because the Flyers recently just signed another defenseman and a left winger last week to three-year contracts.
News broke late last Thursday that the Flyers had signed coveted Austrian left winger Michael Raffl. Reports were also coming in earlier that day that they had also signed another defenseman, Maxim Lamarche from the QMJHL‘s Baie-Comeau. The Flyers denied the reports on Thursday, but come Friday afternoon they admitted that they had signed both of the players.
