Hostetter Joins Phantoms; Bourdon to Greenville





April 7, 2011






The Adirondack Phantoms have announced the addition of defenseman Tyler Hostetter to the team. Additionally, the Phantoms have announced that they are loaning defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon to Greenville (SC) of the ECHL.

Hostetter signed a contract with the Flyers in the summer of 2009 as he was midway through his Major Juniors career with Erie. He has participated in the past two Flyers summer rookie camps at the team's training facility in Voorhees, NJ.

Hostetter will wear #55 and is expected to make his professional debut Friday night at the Manchester Monarchs. The 20 year old from Lititz, Penn. has played the last four seasons for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League. His hometown is near Lancaster and only 70 miles from Philadelphia.

Hostetter scored six goals and 23 points with only 17 penalty minutes in 36 games played with the Otters this year. Erie's season just came to a heartbreaking finish earlier this week with a late Game 7 loss to the Windsor Spitfires in the opening round of the playoffs.

His head coach for the last four season with the Otters was Robbie Ftorek who has previously served as Head Coach of the Albany River Rats (1993-96, 2003-06) as well as the Boston Bruins (2001-03), New Jersey Devils (1998-2000) and Los Angeles Kings (1987-89).

Bourdon's season with the Phantoms is completed as he is heading back to Greenville (SC) for the third time this season. He played in Tuesday night's opening game of their playoff series at Elmira and then made a late night trip back to Glens Falls for Wednesday's Phantoms home finale. Greenville is the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference and their best of five series against #8 seed Elmira is even at one game apiece as the series heads south for games 3 and 4 Friday and Saturday.

The 21 year old from St. Hyancinthe, Quebec was a third round selection (#67 overall) of the Flyers in 2008. He won Best Defenseman of the year honors with Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2009. This year, Bourdon scored one goal and nine assists in 46 games in his second season with the Phantoms.
