Here's someone who has found a regular role in the NHL.

In the last few seconds, the renowned David Pagnotta just reported that the player who was drafted in the first round by the Canadiens in the 2017 draft, Ryan Poehling, has succeeded in his bet!

He has just landed a nice two-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Ryan Poehling, signed to a 2x$1.9M extension by PHI, is a speedy bottom six forward who kills penalties.

Poehling, 25 years old, a 25th overall pick, has accumulated 14 points in 44 games this season, after having collected 14 points in 53 games last season.

Quietly, he already has 182 NHL games under his belt.

After unsuccessful stints with the Canadiens and the Pittsburgh Penguins, it seems like he has found his place in Philadelphia.

Congratulations, Ryan!
