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.

Elliott will start Game 1 in Pittsburgh.

Elliott stopped all 17 shots that he faced in the Flyers shutout win over the Rangers in the Flyers’ season finale. It was a much better outing than his return to the crease last Thursday. As long as he is healthy, Elliott will be in net for the Flyers. He was 0-1-1 with a 5.31 GAA and .864 SV% in his only two starts against the Penguins this season.
