The NHL has had some great call-up lines over the last two years.
Some of them were obvious: Mike Green, Alex Ovechkin, Martin St. Louis, Johnny Boychuk and Tyler Seguin all got NHL-ready minutes.
Others were less obvious: Matt Niskanen, Joe Thornton, Nikita Kucherov, Ryan Getzlaf, Jeff Carter, and even Johnny Oduya got minutes for their respective teams.
Here are some other interesting names on the call: Matt Duchene, Erik Karlsson, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Evgeni Malkin, Alex Goligoski, Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Pietrangelo, Jaromir Jagr, and Alex Oduytou have all made a strong showing in the league.
There’s a ton of depth in the top six, so the Flyers might be the best team in the East, but they need to keep building their roster.
They’re currently second in the Eastern Conference.
