Phantoms Announce Opening Roster

Seven players were assigned to the Reading Royals of the ECHL today, from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms roster.  That brings the roster to 22, which is about what it should be this time of year, with most relatively healthy.  Recall, there is no roster limit in the AHL, just however many players you can afford to pay…

At any rate, the players sent to Reading were:

Forwards: Andrew Johnston, Marcel Noebels, and Matt Hatch

Defensman: Max Lamarche

Goaltenders: Connor Knapp and Martin Ouellette

Here’s the official roster from the Phantoms.  It’s a photo file–I’ll attempt to size for one sheet of paper for printing:

Phantoms Roster


I’ll try to get some player capsules and pictures up later, in advance of the road opener on Saturday in Wilkes-Barre.  Anyone going to that one?


How ya doin’

  1. So they haven’t found a full-time GM yet… that’s still being filled by papa Hextall (the ADK site, still yet to be updated for the current team, in fact still lists Homer as GM and Hex as AGM…)

    Straight after you posted this, those of us on the Phantoms email list got a special offer from the WB/Scranton Pens for the season-opening game there…

  2. I can’t wait for the first Canadian team to come to the PPL Center so we can hear Oh Canada in the new arena. I hope it goes better than this poor guy.

    • Until the United States can beat Canada in a knock-out round match at the prestigious Winter Olympic Games men’s ice hockey tournament, perhaps it would serve well to cut the singer some slack. 😉 … (Poor guy – had to be feeling like the biggest doofus of all time!)

      • Mark Donnelly is famous as the anthem singer for the Vancouver Canucks. Before that he used to sing the anthems at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins games. He is famous for stopping during the anthem and letting the crowd sing. He recently lost half his body weight, going from 370 to 185 pounds. Here is a version of him singing Oh Canada at Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals between Boston and Vancouver.

  3. At least Donnelly knows the proper words to his country’s national anthem — which is, unfortunately, all too often far more that can be said about famous American singers who perform the national anthem at high profile sporting events.

    Can’t remember when the last time anybody ever put on a tuxedo just to do the American anthem at a sporting event, either.

    I, myself, am ready to give scrub this whole episode from the dude’s record. 🙂
