The Flyers were one of the last teams in the NHL to make official cuts, but that day has finally come.
It was announced earlier that NHL vet Mark Bell and try-out Adrian Foster were released and that Andreas Nodl, Jared Ross and Jon Kalinski have been assigned to the Phantoms.
Leading the second wave of not surprising cuts is Josh Beaulieu, Rob Bellamy, Matt Clackson, Ryan Dingle, Garrett Klotz, Jon Matsumoto, Tomas Sinisalo, Oskars Bartulis, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Joonas Lehtivuori, Kevin Marshall, Mike Ratchuk, David Sloane, Logan Stephenson, Matt Duchene, Nicola Riopel, Michael-Lee Teslak.
All have been assigned to the Phantoms.
Those sent back to their junior teams include David Labreque, Eric Wellwood, Zac Rinaldo, Jacob Deserres, Adam Morrison.
The Flyers have signed juniors try-out defenseman Tyler Hostetter. Hostetter, a Pennsylvania native, was returned to the Erie Otters after signing the contract. The 5’11 blue liner is a right-handed shot and plays relatively mean.
James van Riemsdyk, Blair Betts, Mika Pyorala, David Laliberte, Patrick Maroon and Danny Syvret have remained on the team so far.
