Farabee was recalled from Lehigh Valley (AHL) and is expected to make his NHL debut on Monday.
Farabee was one of the final cuts in training camp and one of the Flyers’ best prospects. After scoring just 15 goals in six games (2.50 GF/gm) the Flyers are looking to inject some offence into their lineup. Farabee was a first-round pick (No.14 overall) in 2018 and has registered three goals and one assist in his first four AHL games. The 19-year-old is expected to make his debut on the third line (with Kevin Hayes and Scott Laughton) and the first power-play unit.
The Flyers have sent Joel Farabee to Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Farabee, who was a first-round pick (No.14 overall) in 2018 nearly made the Flyers opening night roster but the last second return of Tyler Pitlick has pushed him to the AHL to begin the year. The 19-year-old had 17 goals and 19 assists (36 points) in 37 games at Boston University last season.
The Flyers select Joel Farabee with the No.14 overall pick.
Farabee is known as a high-character 200-foot player. He served as the captain of the U.S. National U-18 team and scored 33 goals with 43 assists (76 points) in 62 games while playing on a line with Oliver Wahlstrom and projected 2019 No.1 overall pick Jack Hughes. Farabee creates offence with his great speed and compares favourably to Blues’ forward Brayden Schenn.
