Philadelphia Flyers Trade 12th Pick To Get Jett Luchanko

Steve Marcus / AP

After a tense three minutes, the Philadelphia Flyers traded their 12th pick in the first round for the 13th pick in the first round and third pick in the 2025 draft with the Minnesota Wild. With the 13th pick, the Flyers picked Jett Luchanko, who was a center for the Guelph Storm in the 2023-24 season.

Luchanko gained 74 points over 68 games in the regular season (20 goals, 54 assists) and played four games with three assists in the Guelph Storm’s playoffs. Over the past two seasons, Luchenko has played 114 games, with a total of 88 points for the Guelph Storm.

Luchanko was born on August 21, 2006 in London, Ontario, CAN. Prior to playing for the Guelph Storm, Luchanko played for the London Junior Knights where he had 46 points over 21 games (19 goals, 27 assists).

Luchanko was voted as one of the top three smartest and hardest working players in the Western Conference of the OHL. He is smart, has a high-end drive and motor, skates at breakneck speed and is a very deceptive and accurate shooter. He uses his edges to move deceptively and powerfully. He shows almost no fear and is often willing to battle in tough areas.

Luchanko has been described as a “silky-smooth playmaker, driving the play every time and displaying great hands in tight spaces and high traffic areas” by The Hockey Writers. Just when you think he’s going to shoot, he does a quick look off pass and fools the defensemen and goalies.

I grew up in Seattle mostly following baseball as a kid and more recently got into hockey. Since then it’s been my favorite thing, I love the community surrounding it, the people it’s brought into my life, the opportunities and of course the game itself. When I’m not watching hockey I spend a lot of time outside with my dog and following all kinds of other sports!
