Flyers Call Up Oskar Lindblom from Phantoms
There was no update on Monday regarding Michal Neuvirth and the lower-body injury that forced him from Sunday's game, but there was a pair of roster moves made by the Flyers that could spell something else coming soon.
The Flyers called up forward Oskar Lindblom from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The team also activated goalie Anthony Stolarz from the injured, non-roster list and loaned him to Lehigh Valley.
Lindblom has scored 16 goals and has 34 points in 54 games in his first full professional season with Lehigh Valley. He was named an All-Star in the AHL this season and scored goals in four of the Phantoms last five games.
Lindblom will wear No. 54 and be available for Tuesday night's game.
Stolarz has been out of action since late last season when he suffered a knee injury that ended his season. He was back on the ice ahead of training camp before having another surgery on his knee that held him out for the duration of the season thus far.
Stolarz had an 18-9-9 record with the Phantoms last season. In seven games with the Flyers, Stolarz was 2-1-1 with a 2.07 GAA.
The Flyers still need to make a corresponding move if Neuvirth isn't able to suit up on Tuesday. The likely option is Phantoms goalie Dustin Tokarski. No official move has been made yet, which could indicate the Flyers are working toward a deal for another goalie.
The Flyers were once again linked to Detroit netminder Petr Mrazek and discussions are ongoing according to reports.
The Flyers host the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
