Philadelphia Flyers‘ 3rd round pick in the 2013 draft (#72 overall) left wing Tyrell Goulbourne(12) just one season ago split time between affiliates Lehigh Valley Phantoms and Reading Royals but was limited to 1 goal through 24 AHL games and did much better in the lower league (8 goals, 11 assists).

In 34 contests with the farm team this year though he’s already approaching close to season high totals of 6 goals and 4 assists with a +8 rating.

It was enough to earn a first NHL recall from the parent club.

In his 2 games he failed to register a point in a very conservative 10 shifts for around 5 minutes per appearance but came away with a +1 rating and threw 4 hits in two victories, so that’s ain’t too bad.

The 6′ 199 lbs. forward won the 2015 WHL Championship with long-term squad Kelowna Rockets before turning pro.

He’s always been a decent scorer but hasn’t exactly produced the type of stats you see for such a decently high selection.

Signed to a three year entry level deal he will become a restricted free agent at the end of the current campaign.

It won’t be any surprise to see the almost 24-year old get a one-year extension but will need to continue to perform well in the minors.
