Injury Woes Deplete Phantoms Defense

More roster movement today, as another injury to a defenseman in Philadelphia leads to a call-up.

Brandon Manning heads to Philadelphia to join the Flyers as they head to Tampa for a game tomorrow.  With Gostisbehere already in Philadelphia and Alt out indefinitely with a shoulder the Phantoms pull Maxim LaMarche from the Reading Royals for tonight’s game versus the Baby Penguins.  LaMarche will wear #44.

Here are the revised defensive pairings:

Hagg – Pettersson

Lauridsen – Delisle

Flemming – LaMarche

It has been confirmed that Rob Zepp will start in goal; let’s hope the retooled blue liners can protect him a bit.  Look for the top two pairings to get double shifts.  No word yet on where Straka will land with the attacking skaters.

  1. It’s sure fun watching the call-ups winning with the big Bullies!

    It will be interesting to see the depth of the minor leagues coming up but at least the Flyers have won 4 of their last 5!

    Chris VandeVelde helped the cause last night with his first goal as a Flyer and his first in the NHL since 2012. The ‘Ghost’ is getting his sheet ironed out as well!

    Go Phantoms
    Go Flyers

    Well we’re living here in Allentown
    And the Flyers are taking all our players down
    Out in Philadelphia they’re winning games
    Kicking some ass
    Taking no names
