Matvey Michkiov is a Philadelphia Flyer: NHL Draft Reactions

For the 7th pick of the night, the Philadelphia Flyers select Matvey Michkoiv in the 2023 NHL Draft. 

The NHL Draft No.1 the pick was Connor Bedard for the Chicago Blackhawks. This was followed by Adam Fantilli for the Anaheim Ducks then Will Smith for the Columbus Blue Jackets. 

In the 2022 NHL Draft, the Flyers got the fifth pick and chose Cutter Gauthier. The Flyers have been open about their pursuit of Michkov according to FloHockey’s NHL Mock Draft 2.0. 

Michkov is often referred to as the “Wild Card” of the entry draft due to his diverse skill set on the ice. The dynamic center player could be a valuable asset to potentially any team and the Flyers will be able to use his diverse skillset to their advantage.
