The Flyers seem to always know what they're going to get from Scott Laughton.

Finding his niche in the NHL as a tireless, team-oriented role forward, Laughton on Tuesday was named the recipient of the Flyers' 2019-20 Yanick Dupre Class Guy Award, an honor that is given to the Flyer deemed to show character, dignity and respect on and off the ice as voted by the Philadelphia chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

Laughton scored a personal-best 13 goals this season despite playing 33 fewer games than he did in a career year during 2018-19. Staples of his game: constantly skating hard, forechecking, killing penalties, playing different positions and standing up for teammates. Remember the Senators game?

A 2012 first-round pick of the organization who has played parts of seven seasons for the Flyers, Laughton is always classy, professional and accessible in his dealings with media members and fans.

"It's very special for me to be awarded this by our media," Laughton said in a statement released by the Flyers. "Throughout the year I try and bring positive energy to the rink and do all the little things to be a good teammate and representative of the organization. Getting more involved in the community has been important to me and I hope to continue to build on that each year."

 

The Flyers are handing out their annual team awards throughout this week. Kevin Hayes was the recipient of the Gene Hart Memorial Award. Below is the schedule for the remaining honors:
