Jones clears waivers; Betts signing expected

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.
