Cullen Eddy(20) Philadelphia Flyers

Undrafted, 3rd year defenseman Cullen Eddy(20) proves that hard work and determination can pay off. After a couple of seasons signed to a pair of two-way AHL contracts with Adirondack Phantoms, he moves up a notch with a two-year, two-way NHL contract with Philadelphia Flyers.

He had career highs last season with 54 games played, 2 goals and 13 assists to go along with 130 penalty minutes, which ranked him second on the team. He also had a dismal -13 plus/minus, which he’ll need to work on.

The 23-year old, 6′ 195 lbs. blue liner was born right down the street from Broad Street and played his college hockey in PA too.

There’s little doubt that he will continue to develop his game in the AHL but with a couple of strong training camps could be eyed as a potential fill-in as the Flyers rebuild their defense.
