The Philadelphia Flyers announced the full roster and schedule for Development Camp on Monday afternoon, and it looks like most of the prospects were already in town. The Philadelphia Eagles hosted the Flyers prospects at their practice facility, the NovaCare Complex for some flag football and a behind the scenes tour.
Top goalie prospect Carter Hart and first-round draftee Joel Farabee were among the many prospects to make the trip. The group posed for a picture in front of the complex as well as various throughout the day. They got the honor of holding the Lombardi Trophy, which the Eagles won in Super Bowl 52 as they beat the Patriots, 41-33, to win the Super Bowl.
Here’s the whole group of prospects that made the trip.

Hart even showed off his throwing arm.
Hart and Philippe Myers were pretty shocked at the size of this cleat.
Jay O’Brien, James De Haas, and Isaac Ratcliffe took in the sights of the locker room.
First round pick Joel Farabee held the Lombardi Trophy. Hopefully he’ll be holding a different championship trophy in Philadelphia in a few years.
It must’ve been nice for Farabee, who is originally from Philadelphia and tweeted out #FlyEaglesFly on Super Bowl Sunday.
Visiting the Eagles and the Lombardi Trophy was a great way for these prospects to kick off a week together leading into Development Camp over the long weekend.
