Flyers Prospect Update: J.R Avon Scores OT Winner
J.R Avon scored the OT winner for the Peterborough Petes last night to send them to the Semifinals.
He was a projected 3rd/4th round pick but since there was no OHL in 2020, Avon went undrafted.
Avon stands at 6’0, 185lbs and is considered to be a burner with solid hockey sense.
Kid can absolutely fly.
Avon had 29G-31A-60P in 59 games for the Peterborough Petes of the OHL this regular season.
He projects as a bottom-six player in the NHL. As I said previously said, he can fly, has some skill and is a ferocious forechecker.
Since his contract slid because of Covid, he might have 1 more year of Junior left because of it. Fact check me if you find out other wise, please.
