Future Watch: Joel Farabee Rookie Hockey Cards, FlyersFuture Watch: Joel Farabee Rookie Hockey Cards, FlyersJoel Farabee was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers with the 14th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. As a top American prospect, most knew the kind of talent he possessed it was just a matter of where he fell in the draft. So how did he get there?

He played with the U.S. National Team Development Program alongside players like Quinn Hughes and Brady Tkachuk. He scored 85 goals in 153 games during his time in junior hockey. He’s a goal scorer who can make great passes to set up teammates, but he’s looking to score.

His international track record is strong. In 2016-17, in the U18s, he had three goals and three assists in seven games in that tournament. In 2017-18, the winger won a Silver Medal in the same tournament and was voted a Top-Three player on Team USA. Four goals and four assists, in seven games, was outstanding.

In 2018-19, he attended Boston University where he recorded 17 goals and 19 assists in 37 games. During that season he was chosen to play for Team USA again in the U20 World Junior Championship; three goals and two assists in seven games was a solid performance earning a Silver Medal. At the end of the season the Cicero, New York native grabbed the following honors: Top Collegiate Hockey Rookie, Hockey East Rookie of the Year and the Hockey East All-Rookie Team.

In 2019-20, Farabee has mostly played for the Flyers. He played four games in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and in his first 46 with the Flyers the prospect had seven goals and 11 assists. He’s performed admirably for a player who is only 19 doing the little things to keep him in the lineup.

Collectors can find his Upper Deck Young Guns rookie card in 2019-20 Series 2 Hockey. He has other rookies in Trilogy, Black Diamond, MVP, and Allure to name a few.
