The Philadelphia Flyers have made a qualifying offer to Jason Akeson.

The 24-year-old was a pleasant surprise in the post-season after playing in the last game of the season in each of the last two seasons. Akeson managed two goals and three points in the seven game series against the Rangers and that play, along with a 24 goal, 64 point effort in the AHL in 2013-14, was enough to warrant a qualifying offer from Philadelphia.

Jason Akeson has been a pleasant surprise for the Flyers in the playoffs.

Akeson was recalled for the final regular season game and has played in all five playoff matches to date. He has a goal and two points in the post-season and has averaged 12:06 minutes of ice time in the series. The 23-year-old should have a great chance to crack the Flyers lineup next season as he had 24 goals and 64 points in 70 AHL games this season.

It was a big turnaround in Game 2 for Jason Akeson.

Akeson scored his first NHL playoff goal on Sunday and it came after he took a double minor in Game 1 which resulted in a couple of power play goals for the Rangers which put the game out of reach. His power play goal tied the game at two apiece. "I don't think a bad penalty is going to determine if I play harder or not, I try my hardest no matter what," Akeson said. "It was unfortunate for the first game, but we looked past it. We won the second game, and now we look onto the third."
