It’s Joel Farabee time.
The Philadelphia Flyers recalled the top prospect on Sunday evening, and he’ll be slotted right into the lineup in a position to succeed on Monday night.
Farabee will line up as the third-line right wing with center Kevin Hayes and left wing Scott Laughton. He will also get a chance on the top power-play unit in his debut.

Sliding Hayes down to the third line also switches things up in the top six for the Flyers. Claude Giroux will slide back over to center with James van Riemsdyk joining the top line.
Here are what the Flyers lines were this morning, per Bill Meltzer.
James van Riemsdyk – Claude Giroux – Jake Voracek
Oskar Lindblom – Sean Couturier – Travis Konecny
Scott Laughton – Kevin Hayes – Joel Farabee
Michael Raffl – Mikhail Vorobyev – Chris Stewart
It’s somewhat disappointing to see Chris Stewart in the lineup instead of Tyler Pitlick, but Alain Vigneault may want someone to combat Vegas’ Ryan Reaves.
It’ll be interesting to see how Giroux does back in the middle, and it’s exciting to see the second line reunited after a strong start to the season.
The puck drops tonight at 7 p.m. EST as the Flyers look to get back on track against the Golden Knights.
