After Travis Konecny was ruled out indefinitely with a concussion Monday morning, the Flyers added a new player to the carousal. On Wednesday morning, the Flyers added Lehigh Valley Phantoms’ winger David Kase.
For a little background, the Flyers drafted Kase with the 128th pick in the 2015 NHL draft. The 5’11, 169 pound winger out of the Czech Republic worked his way onto the Phantoms roster after a stellar year with the
In 2018, Kase played in 40 games, where he picked up eight goals and 15 assists. So far this season, Kase has only six points in 21 games, but has been playing well as of late. Flyers’ insider Bill Meltzer delves into his playing style:
