CHICAGO _ In the fourth round Saturday, the Flyers selected a player who has good bloodlines.
They drafted Matthew Strome with the 106th overall pick. The 6-4, 206-pound left winger is the brother of NHL players Ryan and Dylan, and he scored 34 goals for Hamilton in the Ontario Hockey League last season.
Strome was projected to go higher in the draft; prospect expert Craig Button had him ranked 44th, which would have put him in the second round. Strome said he would use his drop to the fourth round as a motivation "to prove people wrong."
