Flyers trade Maroon, Laliberte to Anaheim for Syvret, Bordson.

With the Flyers’ AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, in disarray at a league-worst 3-14-2, something needed to be done.  And on Sunday, it was.

General manager Paul Holmgren pulled the trigger on a deal that sent inactive forward Patrick Maroon and forward David Laliberte to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman and former Phantom Danny Syvret and forward Rob Bordson.

“We are comfortable with Danny, he brings depth to our organization,” Holmgren told the media. “I think he’ll help us, help our power play.

“(Bordson) is a guy we tried to sign last spring after his college season ended. He’s a good kid.”

Syvret, 25, played the 2008-09 and part of the 2009-10 season with the Phantoms, where he scored a combined 17 goals and 53 assists in 91 games. During that time he played he also played 23 games with the Flyers, scoring two goals and two assists.

A center and winger, Bordson, 22, scored one goal and two assists in 15 games with the Ducks’ AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch.

The trade was accelerated by the organization’s need to move Maroon, who was the Phantoms’ top forward, with five goals and three assist in his first nine games. However, clashes with then coach Greg Gilbert, forced the organization to send Maroon home to await relocation. Gilbert was also eventually fired.
Laliberte was a player the Flyers thought highly of as depth in the system. He played 11 games with the Flyers in 2009-10, scoring two goals and one assist. An assistant captain, Laliberte was in the system since the 2007-08 season.
