June 2022 – Coming off an impressive USHL campaign with Sioux City, McLaughlin recorded 28 goals and 44 assists in 62 regular-season games, leading his team in points and assists. Although he failed to tally a postseason goal, McLaughlin helped the Musketeers capture the Clark Cup over Madison. The Flyers have extended an ELC offer to McLaughlin, making him eligible for reassignment to a Canadian major junior team next season. If he elects not to sign the contract, McLaughlin will play next season in the NCAA for the University of North Dakota. Either way, the 2021 seventh-round pick is still a few years away from turning pro. John Gove
