Marshall and Schenn to Philly; D-Man Andy Thomas Acquired
November 29, 2011

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have recalled forward Brayden Schenn from the Adirondack Phantoms and defenseman Kevin Marshall, according to Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren. The Phantoms also announced that they've signed defenseman Andy Thomas to a PTO.

Marshall, 22, briefly returned to Adirondack after playing in the second NHL game of his career, this past Saturday at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers. Marshall made his NHL debut last Monday in Philadelphia, playing 14:11 against the Carolina Hurricanes. Marshall has played in 16 games for the Phantoms this season and his 169 games are the most in Adirondack Phantoms history. The 6-foot-1, 207-pound defenseman was drafted by the Flyers in the second round (41st overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, following four years in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League split between the Lewiston MAINEiacs and Quebec Remparts.

Schenn, 20, goes back to the Flyers following a three-game stint with the Phantoms over Thanksgiving Weekend. Returning from a foot injury which had sidelined him for a month, Schenn notched two goals and two assists over three games with the Phantoms last week. Schenn has points in all seven games he's played with Adirondack this year, totaling six goals and six assists. A former first-round (5th overall) draft pick of Los Angeles in 2009, Schenn came to the Flyers organization last summer as part of the same trade which brough Wayne Simmonds to Philadelphia, while sending Mike Richards and Rob Bordson to the Kings.

Thomas, 26, comes to Adirondack for the first time in his four-year professional career. Thomas has played in 18 games for the ECHL's Trenton Titans this season, after playing in a combined 69 games with the Trenton Devils and Albany Devils last season. A 6-foot-2, 220-pound defenseman from Bow, New Hampshire, Thomas played four seasons at the University of Denver and was a fourth-round draft pick of the Washington Capitals in 2005.

Other Adirondack Phantoms to have made the jump to the Philadelphia Flyers this season include Marc-Andre Bourdon, Erik Gustafsson, Zac Rinaldo and Harry Zolinerczyk. All four of those earlier call-ups are still with the Flyers.
