Phantoms have received Kris Newbury (C) via loan
from the Philadelphia Flyers, according to Flyers
general manager Paul Holmgren. Newbury will be
eligible to play for the Phantoms' next game on
Friday night against the Norfolk Admirals. He
will wear jersey #11 with Adirondack.
Newbury was with the Phantoms at the beginning
of the Phantoms' training camp and played in two
preseason games with the team but was called up
to Philadelphia before Adirondack's season began.
Newbury has played in three games with the Flyers
this year including the team's most recent game
on Thursday, October 17 against Pittsburgh. He
has one assist and seven penalty minutes this
year including a five-minute fighting major last
week against Robert Bortuzzo of the Penguins.
Kris Newbury, 31, has spent the past couple of
seasons with the New York Rangers organization.
He has now played in 75 career NHL games but it's
his AHL statistics that will really catch your
eye; 599 games, 142 goals, 297 assists, 439 points.
Newbury is one of only two players to have racked
up 60 or more points in the AHL in each of the
last three seasons. He was originally acquired
by the Flyers organization this past off-season
in exchange for Danny Syvret (D).
The Phantoms are back at the Glens Falls Civic
Center this Friday night against Norfolk, the
AHL affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks. Saturday they
hit the road to play at Binghamton. And then the
Phantoms return home next week for three games
in four days on October 30, November 1 and November
2. Contact the Phantoms for tickets in advance
for the best seats by calling 518-480-3355.

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting
an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite
group of only 12 other cities who can make such
a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an
old-school feel that began with the Adirondack
Red Wings in 1979 who won four Calder Cups in
their 20-year run at the GFCC. The Adirondack
Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-2010
and are beginning their fifth season.
