Two Flyers Prospects Will Play For Gold At The World Juniors

At the 2021 World Junior Championships, the Philadelphia Flyers had three prospects participating in the championships. Three prospects that could very well be in the orange & black in a few years.

After Sweden’s loss to Finland in the quarterfinals, Flyers prospect, Emil Andrae, tournament came to an end. Andrae, who was a bright spot for Sweden, finished the tournament with no goals, 1-assist, & a team best +3 rating.

With their 4-3 semifinal win over Finland, Team USA will face Canada in the gold medal game. A matchup that will be a battle of the #1 seeds from each group during the round robin.

The Flyers have two prospects on Team USA. Forward prospect Bobby Brink & defense prospect Cam York.

Brink, who has been apart of Team USAs energizing 3rd line, has 2-goals, 4-assists, & a team best +8 rating. York, who is Team USAs captain, has 1-goal, 5-assists, & a +4 rating while averaging a team high 22:34 TOI.

The Gold Medal game is set for tomorrow night, January 5th, at 9:30pm against Team Canada & can be seen on the NHL Network.

As the World Junior comes to an end, the NHL season is just around the corner. It’s a fitting way to transition into the Flyers season with two of their top prospects competing for international gold.
