Before this week begins, it's time for our weekly check-in on the Flyers' prospects playing in the AHL, overseas and at the junior and college levels.
Pascal Laberge, C, 19, 6-1/192, Quebec (QMJHL)
Laberge has tended to be a streaky prospect this season.
Right now, he's on one of his hot streaks.
The 2016 second-round pick ripped off six points (two goals, four assists) in three games last week. He has three goals and seven points over his last four contests after posting just a goal and an assist in his previous nine.
Following a concussion-marred 2016-17 and a midseason trade this year, Laberge may finally be getting comfortable.
Morgan Frost, C, 18, 5-11/172, Sault Ste. Marie (OHL)
Frost, in a prove-it year of sorts, is showing just about everything.
Among it all: he's a goal scorer, too, and not just a playmaker.
In Sault Ste. Marie's 6-2 win over London Sunday, the 2017 first-round pick lit the lamp twice more and finished as a plus-3 with nine shots on goal.
Frost's progression through the junior level has been remarkable. He's gone from seven goals in 2015-16 to 20 in 2016-17 and now 37 with games to play this season. Not to mention, he owns 98 points and a plus-60 rating.
And check out some of this skill:

Cooper Marody, C, 21, 6-1/185, Michigan (NCAA)
Marody's special season in Ann Arbor is not slowing down.
The junior had four points (one goal, three assists) as No. 13 Michigan swept a two-game weekend set from Arizona State.

Through 34 games, Marody, a 2015 sixth-round pick, leads the Big Ten in points (41) and is tied for third among the nation in assists (29).
Next up for him is the Big Ten Tournament.
• An eight-game point streak of one goal and 12 assists was snapped for Travis Sanheim, who went scoreless in the Phantoms' 2-1 loss Friday to Syracuse. The 21-year-old has 15 points in as many games with Lehigh Valley.
• Carter Hart picked up three straight wins last week for Everett, stopping 80 of 83 shots faced. Both his 1.53 goals-against average and .951 save percentage lead the WHL.
• Matthew Strome has 34 goals on the season after scoring three last week for Hamilton, including this nifty one:
Magical moves @Mstrome16 😱

• Battling injury and some inconsistency, 2016 first-round pick German Rubtsov on Thursday scored his first goal since Jan. 26.
• Tallying an assist Saturday, Guelph's Isaac Ratcliffe set a new career high in points with 55.
• Kitchener center Connor Bunnaman recorded a four-point week (two goals, two assists) in three games.
• Anthony Salinitri had his point streak end at nine games, but the 2016 sixth-round pick still put up three assists in four contests for Sarnia.
• With the USHL's Omaha Lancers, 2017 fifth-round pick Noah Cates scored two goals last week and is on a four-game point streak.
• Philippe Myers had a pair of assists in the Phantoms' 6-4 win Wednesday over Utica, while Samuel Morin (undisclosed injury), who hasn't played since Jan. 20, is still out.
• Tanner Laczynski netted two goals in Ohio State's 6-2 win over Wisconsin Friday.
• Goalie prospect Felix Sandstrom has yet to make his debut with his new team, HV71, of the SHL.
