At only 23 years old, Philadelphia Flyers defensive prospect Samuel Morin remains hopefully a big part of the Flyers future. 

The 2011 11th overall pick has had some bad injury luck and it looks like there's finally some light at the end of the tunnel regarding his last injury. 

Morin has been recovering from anterior cruciate ligament surgery since suffering an injury during the Lehigh Valley Phantom's playoff run back in May. 

The 6'6" defenseman has started skating recently and it looks like there's some hope. 

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Carchidi, Morin is close to being to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for a two week conditioning stint.
