Bobby Brink Signs Deal With Philadelphia Flyers

The Minnetonka, Minnesota native was a second round (34th overall) pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. Brink recently concluded an absolutely stellar year with the Denver Pioneers of the NCAA. He won the league scoring title with 14 goals and 43 assists for 57 points in just 41 games. Saturday night, he capped off his season and college career with a national championship victory Saturday over Minnesota State. Brink finished his NCAA career with 92 points in 84 games over 3 seasons with Denver. This past season saw Brink emerge as one of the top prospects in Philadelphia’s system. Previously considered fifth or sixth on Philly’s prospect ranking, Brink firmly established himself as a top-three prospect with the Flyers this season.

You may also remember Brink from his six-point-in-seven-game performance for Team USA at the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championship, playing alongside Anaheim Ducks star Trevor Zegras. Brink narrowly missed out on the Hobey Baker Award this season. He finished as a runner-up to goaltender Dryden McKay from the Minnesota State Mavericks. Brink’s Pioneers defeated them to win the national crown.

While not a large player at 5’9″ and 163 lbs, Brink possesses a high compete level and a willingness to go to the tough areas of the ice. A gifted playmaker with above-average hockey sense, Flyers fans may not have to wait long for Brink’s debut. With his NCAA season done and his entry-level contract signed, Brink is eligible to play as early as Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals. With the Flyers clearly out of the playoff race and having traded captain Claude Giroux, Philly management will be eager to see Brink’s progress at the pro level. Philadelphia has ten games remaining on their schedule.
