The roster additions continue to trickle in now that the summer is coming to a close, and hockey season will soon be upon us. The Phantoms announced on Friday that they have signed defensemen Zach Palmquist and Nick Luukko, as well as goaltender Branden Komm, for the 2018-19 season. Zach Palmquist is a four-year AHL […]
The Flyers announced on Wednesday that they have reached an agreement with 24-year old netminder Anthony Stolarz on a one-year, two-way contract worth $761,250. Stolarz, a second-round pick in 2012, is coming off a 2017-18 season which saw him appear in just four games – 1 with Lehigh Valley and 3 with Reading in the […]
The Flyers and goaltender Alex Lyon agreed to a two-year contract on Friday morning. The 25-year-old Lyon avoids arbitration and will return to the Flyers in 2018. Lyon made his NHL debut last season and appeared in 11 games and posted a .905 save percentage with the club when Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth were out with […]

Lehigh Valley has many talented players on their roster heading into the Calder Cup Playoffs this season, where they will face off against the Providence Bruins in the first round for a best-of-5 series.

Lehigh Valley has already clinched a playoff spot, and will most likely clinch the division in […]
The new (and shockingly) improved Philadelphia Flyers have just inked another piece of their defense for years to come. At about 2 P.M. (EST) today, the team announced on its official website that they would be signing defenseman T.J. Brennan to a multiyear contract extension. The team did not release details regarding money or yearly […]
With more well-known, recent draft picks on the Phantoms (think Samuel Morin, Oskar Lindblom, and PhilIippe Myers), Phil Varone may not ring a bell to the average Flyers fan. However, Varone is more than just an average AHL player. He boasts an AHL all-star appearance and is one of the best players in the league […]
Some Phantoms and Bears players have played in outdoor events before and knew what to expect from the cold weather (It was 36º, but it felt like it was 0º).
The Flyers called up Tyrell Goulbourne last week, and it took just one look at social media to see the divided reaction of the fanbase.
