Three days after being placed on waivers, defenseman Randy Jones has not been picked up, therefore automatically assigning him with the Adirondack Phantoms. The cost-cutting move drops $2.75 million from the Flyers’ roster which gives the team the ability to sign utility forward Blair Betts, which is expected soon. Jones will be replaced by either Ole-Kristian Tollefsen of Danny Syvret.
Also sent down to the Phantoms were Patrick Maroon and Lukas Kaspar.
Betts, a training camp try out, impressed thoroughly in the preseason with his expertise in penalty killing and face offs. Now that Jones’ contract is off the books, a signing is expected before the end of the day.
