The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that forward Scott Laughton is the recipient of the Yanick Dupre Class Guy Memorial Award for the 2019-20 season. The award is given to the Flyer deemed to show character, dignity and respect on and off the ice as voted by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. The announcement comes as part of the Flyers annual Team Awards, powered by Constellation Energy.
“It’s very special for me to be awarded this by our media,” said Laughton. “Throughout the year I try and bring positive energy to the rink and do all the little things to be a good teammate and representative of the organization. Getting more involved in the community has been important to me and I hope to continue to build on that each year.”
Laughton is in his seventh season with the Flyers, including his fourth full year with the club, since being selected in the First Round (20th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He posted 27 points (13g-14a) in 49 games to go along with a plus-minus rating of +13. He set a new career high with his 13 goals, having played 33 fewer games than last season when he posted 12 goals in 82 games.
