Looking at Philadelphia Flyers 5th Round Picks Through The Past Decade

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, then you know that Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Chuck Fletcher made his first move of the offseason by obtaining the free agent rights to forward Kevin Hayes from the Winnipeg Jets for a fifth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. This move showed the aggressiveness Fletcher has stated he’ll show during the summer to help improve the roster and will now have until July 1st to get the 6’5 centerman signed to a contract before other teams are able to.

There’s been skepticism from some people in the Flyers fan base about possibly giving a draft pick away for nothing because there’s no guarantee that Hayes will sign, especially considering the latest rumor surrounding a deal, but I’m here to tell them that fifth-round picks aren’t all that valuable.
