Flyers Inside Out

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Taylor Leier took a puck to the face Sunday and needed 12 stitches on his lower cheek to close the wound.

He tweeted out a photo of the damage, and as expected had a bit of a scowl on his grill.

It's a good bet the cut hurts just a little bit less today.

That's because Leier, 19, signed his entry-level contract with the Flyers Monday.

The Flyers have really been impressed with Leier's progression since drafting him in the fourth round (No. 117 overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry draft.

I caught up with Leier, a native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, during development camp in July and that story has a lot of details about how the organization feels about him.

You can read it here:

Leier puts the Flyers at the 50-contract limit this season, however he now joins two other players - Scott Laughton and Anthony Stolarz - on a list of prospects who can have their contracts slide to next season because they remain junior eligible.

As a result the Flyers still have room to add two or three contracts (depends on Laughton making the roster) to the organization if they so choose.

Leier plays for the Portland Winterhawks, the defending champion of the Western Hockey League.
