Flyers NHL Draft

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall, right, speaks as chairman Ed Snider looks on.

The Flyers took two players, defenseman Ivan Provorov and forward Travis Konecny, in first round of the NHL Draft on Friday night. On Saturday, their biggest splash came in the form of an unexpected trade, a deal that sent Nicklas Grossmann and Chris Pronger -- his contract, at least -- to Arizona in exchange for Sam Gagner and a future pick.

Meanwhile, in Sunrise, Fla., the team selected seven players in the final five* rounds of the draft, including a pair of goalies in the third round and another in the seventh. 

*They traded their second round pick on Friday night in order to move from No. 29 to 24.

Here's a little bit about them...

3rd Round - 70th Overall

Felix Sandstrom, G

Brynas Jr (Sweden) | 6-2, 191 lbs. | Age: 18 | Born: Gavle, Sweden

• Ranked 3rd among European goalies by NHL Central Scouting.

SCOUTING REPORT: "Sandstrom missed chunks of the season due to various ailments, after he came into the season as a top prospect. This lack of playing time has led to divisive stances within the industry, with some scouts claiming he's clearly good enough to go in the top two rounds and others stating he's more of a middle-round selection. Sandstrom has shown advanced play for several seasons and has impressive raw tools. He moves pretty well for a player his size, while not being erratic. His goaltender IQ grades high, as he tracks the puck pretty well and stays ahead of the play. Sandstrom is a roll of the dice, as its not outside the realm of possibility that he's in the NHL within three or four years, but his lack of playing time could scare teams."   -- Corey Pronman, ESPN In$ider



3rd Round - 90th Overall

Matej Tomek, G

Topeka (NAHL) | 6-2, 180 lbs | Age: 18 | Born: Bratislava, Slovakia

• Ranked 5th among North American goalies by NHL Central Scouting.

SCOUTING REPORT: "After being a top prospect in the Slovak program for a few years, Tomek came to North America this season to play in the NAHL (a tier below the USHL in quality of competition), where he was dominant. He's very athletic for a man his size, and while he still has room to fill out in his frame, his athleticism and size are notable. He is gifted in his movements and stays composed. The issue with Tomek isn't one of a glaring hole as much as the quality of opponents; his puck-tracking and hockey sense haven't been truly tested at the NAHL level. He has committed to play at North Dakota in 2015-16."   -- Corey Pronman, ESPN InSider
