The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, announced today that they have re-signed goaltender Anthony Stolarz to a one-year contract.
A 6-foot-6-inch netminder heading into his fifth professional season, Stolarz has compiled a 48-41-11 record — to go along with a 2.90 goals-against average and 0.911 save percentage — across 108 contests with the Phantoms at the AHL level.
Stolarz missed nearly all of the 2017-18 season due to an injury, but managed to appear in a single game with the Phantoms as well as three contests with the Reading Royals of the ECHL.
During the 2016-17 season, Stolarz saw a series of professional firsts as he appeared in seven contests for the Flyers where he recorded his first NHL game, win, and shutout. While with Philadelphia he posted a 2-1-1 record with a 2.07 GAA and 0.928 save percentage.
The 2012 second-round (45 overall) draft selection of the Flyers was also named a 2016 AHL All-Star.

Starting at just $18 for group tickets and $22.50 for single game buyers, tickets for the Flyers preseason showdown are on sale to the general public at PPLCenter.com or at the QNB Box Office at PPL Center located at the corner of Seventh and Hamilton.
