TSN’s Director of Scouting Craig Button has an Philadelphia Flyers prospect in the top five of his best NHL-affiliated prospects.

Flyers defender Ivan Provorov was the No. 4 overall ranked prospect by Button, while playing for the Brandon Wheat Kings. Provorov is one of four Flyers prospects to appear in the top 50 list.

The No. 7 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, Provorov is just 19-years-old but is going to be a good one, already having the look of a NHL defenseman. The defender has 12 goals and 50 points in 43 games for Brandon and his plus-39 rating is outstanding.

The Flyers also have three more players on the list. 2014 first-round pick, 17th overall, defenceman Travis Sanheim is No. 23 and is enjoying his best success to date playing for the Calgary Hiteman. The 19-year-old has 43 points in 34 games, he attended rookie and main camp with the Flyers before being sent back to Calgary back in September.

2015 first-round selection center Travis Konecny is No. 29, he had 29 goals and 68 points in 60 OHL games in 2014-15.  Amateur try-out Philippe Myers wasn't drafted, but earned a contract with the Flyers after joining their camp on an amateur tryout basis. The defender is No. 38 on the list.

Toronto Maple Leafs 2014 first-round pick William Nylander is No. 1.
