2024 Salary Cap: $67.7M

Larkin, McAvoy, The Hopeful New Faces of Philly

For the last four seasons, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was the topic of conversation in terms of up and coming talent in Philly. The now 26 year old has battled inconsistency throughout his career. He seemed to peak in 2020 after a 78 point campaign and has slowly declined to a 50 point player. Not quite the image of success a top six forward is expected to draw up. RNH signed a two year deal this off-season but may find this as his last chance to prove his value to remain with the club after the 2025 season. 2024 will see two fresh names injected into the Flyers lineup and are expected to be relied upon to produce and assist with returning the Flyers to the playoffs.

Charlie McAvoy (20), drafted 13th overall in 2022 has developed and improved his game through his two seasons on the Flyers farm squad. The smooth skating defender will attend a short stint at the Flyers development camp before starting the season in the second pairing with Brandon Gormley.

Dylan Larkin (22), obtained from Winnipeg this off-season, has expectations of being the face of the franchise as his career in Philly advances. Dylan was a heavily relied upon forward with Winnipeg as they returned to the post-season. The Jets almost played their way as underdog to the third round before being eliminated by the Canucks. Larkin in his first full pro season tallied 23 goals and 38 assists for 61 points in 80 contests. The speedy offensive winger is expected to start the season centering the top line following a stint at development camp. Expectations would see Larkin improve upon his 61 points should he remain injury free.
