The Flyers traded the 29th and 61st overall picks to the Toronto Maple Leafs for their 24th pick and selected Travis Konecny.

Elite Prospects: A talented scoring forward that can play either as a center or on the wing; plays with the bite and intensity of a guy who is willing to do anything to win a game. Possesses dynamic skating ability that allows him to accelerate rapidly with each step, incredible hockey sense, electrifying puckhandling skills, and a lightning release on his shot; when you put this skillset together with hard-nosed determination, proactiveness in all three zones, and a physical willingness to grind and persevere, you get a game-changer who can be extremely difficult to play against. 

2014-2015 season: 68 points (29 G, 39 A) in 60 games with the Ottawa 67s of the OHL this season. 10 points (3 G, 7 A) in five games during the postseason.
