PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Defense was obviously a top priority for the Flyers at Sunday’s NHL Draft.

They used four of their six picks on blue liners, including top selection Samuel Morin. The 11th-selection overall, he is 17-years-old, 6’6″, and spent this past season in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The Flyers also went with defense in the second round, selecting 18-year-old Robert Hagg out of Sweden with the 41st-overall pick.

The rest of the draft went like this for the Flyers:

3rd round – Tyrell Goulbourne LW Kelowna, WHL

5th round – Terrance Amorosa D Holderness High School – N.H.

6th round – Merrick Madsen G Proctor High School – N.H.

7th round – David Drake D Des Moines, USHL

KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Dave Isaac of the Courier Post to get his take on this year’s draft, and also to get some insight into where the Flyers go from here this offseason.
