In 13 games with the Oshawa Generals of the OHL, Laughton has 14 goals and 11 assists but his goal on Sunday night was nothing short of spectacular.
Enough words - you just have to see it.
He is a gritty, two-way center who showed flashes of promise in his cup-of-tea with the Flyers. Laughton is a defensive-minded center who could make his initial impact in the NHL in the defensive zone and on the penalty kill (sounds a lot like Sean Couturier, right?). His offense is really starting to come together this year for Oshawa. Right now, they think he needs more time to develop but I'm excited about his potential.
