In somewhat of a surprise move, the Flyers have recalled Oskar Lindblom from Lehigh Valley and have activated goaltender Anthony Stolarz from the injured, non-roster list.
Lindblom joins the Flyers after failing to make the 23-man roster out of training camp. After a slow start to the season, Lindblom has posted 16 goals and 34 points through 54 games with the Phantoms.
If head coach Dave Hakstol elects to utilize Lindblom for Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens, he would bring some much-needed speed and a solid two-way presence to Valtteri Filppula's line. An AHL All-Star, Lindblom has also proven to be a streaky scorer. He's currently on a three-game goal streak and back in December he posted five goals over a six-game stretch (see Future Flyers Report).
Stolarz joins the Phantoms after spending the entire season recovering from offseason surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee. The 6-foot-6 netminder started skating for the first time this month and just two weeks ago he took shots from defenseman Sam Morin prior to the Flyers' practice at the SkateZone in Voorhees, New Jersey.
With Alex Lyon now with the Flyers for the foreseeable future, Stolarz joins goaltenders John Muse and Dustin Tokarski in Lehigh Valley.
