Veteran Swede Leads all Farm Players

Silfverberg Eyes 2nd Chance

For a player at the age of 29; playing in the farm system can be a frustrating and demoralizing experience. In Silfverberg's case, the drive for success at the next level has not faded. Jakob has spent just over a season and a half on the farm and has impressed his peers and management. Last season he amassed 34 goals and 49 assists for 83 points in the 82 game season. This season he has taken off like a man on a mission. Through just 53 games, Silfverberg has reached the 80 point mark yet again by scoring 27 goals and 53 assists. He is on pace for 123 points. Promotion to the professional roster is a mere formality come next season.



But where does he fit in the Flyers future? With a bargain $1.8million cap hit, the soon to be 30 year old will be a member of Philly's top nine and possibly could earn a top six role out of training camp. Nick Backstrom and Alex Bourret's $7million contracts both come to an end this off-season. The Flyers will have some serious options to restructure depending on how the rest of the season and playoffs pan out.
