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.
For one week, beginning on Sept. 7 at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., 29 Flyers’ prospects will take the ice for the team’s annual rookie camp. Among the attendees are former second-overall draft pick James van Riemsdyk, defenseman Kevin Marshall, Marc-Andre Bourdon and Patrick Maroon.
The Flyers’ prospects will conclude the camp with a scrimmage against the Washington Capitals’ prospects, held at the Skate Zone on Sept 11.
