The NHL’s 23-man roster limit does not apply after the trade deadline, though teams still have to operate under the salary cap. With three games remaining to close out the disappointing 2013 season, the Philadelphia Flyers have recalled four Phantoms for these otherwise arbitrary games: Jason Akeson, Scott Laughton, Tye McGinn and Matt Konan.

The Adirondack Phantoms have welcomed a number of new additions in the past few weeks as a result of junior seasons ending and free agent signings from the Philadelphia Flyers organization.
Among the new recruits are Nick Cousins (2011 3rd round pick), Brandon Alderson (CHL overager free agent), Derek Mathers (2011 7th round pick), Kyle Flanagan [...]
Update: Tye McGinn will be playing on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek against the New York Rangers. Presumably Matt Read will shift to the second line with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds while Simon Gagne will slide to the third line. Scott Hartnell remains in the doghouse.

Renaud Lavoie of RDS reported this afternoon that the Philadelphia Flyers have signed forward Ben Holmstrom to a one-year contract extension.
The contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $285,000 at the AHL level.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced this afternoon that they have made two minor moves in the organization.

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen took 13 shifts in the first period on Friday night, as the Flyers took on the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced this afternoon that back-up goaltender Michael Leighton has been placed on injured reserve (IR) with an “upper body injury.” Brian Boucher has been recalled to take his place in the interim.
The trade for Boucher just prior to the 2013 NHL season was rationalized as a safety measure in case of injury. [...]
Zac Rinaldo took three shifts in the first period and two shifts in the second period against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday before leaving the game with a skate laceration in his thigh.
With the news that Rinaldo will be out of the Philadelphia Flyers’ line-up until Saturday at the earliest, the Flyers have recalled prospect [...]
On Halloween in 2009, the Philadelphia Flyers called up prospect David Laliberte to fill in for Danny Briere, who was ailing from a groin injury. The right winger scored on his second shift in his rookie debut, a 6-1 hammering of the Carolina Hurricanes.
Two nights later, Laliberte scored the second (and what would eventually be his [...]
Neither Marc-Andre Bourdon nor Ben Holmstrom were guaranteed spots in the Philadelphia Flyers’ line-up in September, when training camp would have begun for the 2012-13 NHL season.
Regardless of whether the season comes back, it may already be over for the both of them, as official (and unofficial) updates have made recent health issues more clear.
