Flyers rookie Taylor Leier has appeared in 16 NHL games over the past two seasons. But this year is different for the 23-year old.
With an impressive camp and preseason, Leier edged out Matt Read, Oskar Lindblom and others to solidify his spot as a full-time NHL player.
After being told he made the team, Leier called his mom to share the good news.
And, as you can see in the video above, Leier’s mom couldn’t contain her excitement as her son’s dream came true.
On the ice, Leier is a member of the Flyers’ speedy and revamped fourth line alongside Scott Laughton and Michael Raffl.
