CHICAGO _ The Flyers opted for a high school player when they chose left winger Noah Cates in the fifth round Saturday at the United Center.
The 6-foot, 165-pound Cates had 20 goals in 25 games last season for Stillwater (Minn.) High. He had seven points in 11 games with Omaha in the USHL.
Cates has committed to the University of Minnesota-Duluth.
Here's a video of Cates making a nice move and scoring the winning goal in the Section 4AA Minnesota state championship game.
