Observations

December 2019 – With Michael Raffl out with a broken finger, expect Vorobyev to be afforded more opportunity to suit up for the Flyers in the coming weeks. He has a chance to cultivate some staying power in the interim and build on his recent individual success at the AHL level. That being said, keep him on your watch list for now in case Coach Vigneault decides to get creative with the powerplay, given it’s recent struggles. Edric Joseph

 

February 2019 – After logging in 15 games with the Flyers, Vorobyev has been re-assigned to Lehigh Valley for further development. Keep him in mind for when the Flyers move on from Wayne Simmonds and they want someone to adequately fill those shoes. Edric Joseph

June 2018 – Vorobyov had a solid first pro season in North America. He used his size a lot more when it came to playoff hockey and he’s showing a lot of promise as a future power forward. Dobber

April 2017 –  Mikhail Vorobyov has signed his entry-level deal with the Philadelphia Flyers. He has progressed nicely, as well he should given that he is one of the few pure center prospects in the Flyers’ system. He got himself entrenched in Salavat Yulaev’s lineup, which is nothing to sneeze at given how young he is. He can make a nice two-way pivot for the Phantoms this upcoming season. Edric Joseph
