Some of the Flyers' best future prospects will be on display in the ECHL, playing for the Trenton Titans.
There was probably a good chance that some players could've been AHL bound, but but instead with the influx of players at that level, they're back in the ECHL. Some of the exciting young players who will be with the Titans include forward Jason Akeson, who was the team's leading scorer with 55 points in 76 games and goalie Niko Hokinen played in the top league in Finland last year. "People might have thought this was more of a glorified ... 'Slap Shot' type of league where people fought and guys were older," says Titans President and CEO Rich Lisk. "But now we're truly a developmental league."
