This year's second overall selection, Nolan Patrick, has cracked the Philadelphia Flyers opening night roster, according to general manager Ron Hextall.

The news doesn't come as too much of a surprise given Patrick entered this year's draft as the No. 1 rated prospect by NHL Central Scouting. Nevertheless, the 19-year-old had a fairly underwhelming preseason offensively, wherein he tallied just three assists in six games with his biggest highlight coming when he dropped the gloves with Boston Bruins forward David Krejci this past Thursday.

Still Patrick is primed to be an important cog for the Flyers moving forward and is still expected to slot down the middle on the Flyers second or third line.

With the preseason now in the rear-view mirror, Patrick and his teammates will head to San Jose where they will open the regular season against the Sharks - and for Patrick - his first career regular season contest.

Worst prank ever: 3,800 foot glass walkway ‘cracks’ as you walk on it .
What’s one of the meanest ways to scare someone? Trick them into thinking they’re about to die. This glass walkway that stands over 3,800 feet in the air seemed to “crack” as a tour guide walked on it. The transparent path overlooks East Taihang Mountains outside of Handan city in China’s Hebei Province — a beautiful sight, but not one where you’d want to fall off a bridge.
