21 year old Brayden Schenn was the fifth overall selection in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and also excelled in his NHL rookie season scoring 12 goals in 54 games. He began the season with Adirondack and scored a hat trick on October 14, 2011 against Bridgeport. His first NHL goal came on the league's biggest stage at the NHL Winter Classic on January 2, 2012 against the New York Rangers.

Erik Gustafsson, Ben Holmstrom, Brandon Manning, Zac Rinaldo, Eric Wellwood and Harry Zolnierczyk all played with Philadelphia last season while Danny Syvret has played with the Flyers prior to last year.

Jason Akeson was Adirondack's top scorer last year with 55 points including 14 goals and 41 assists in his rookie campaign. And Matthew Ford racked up a career-high 29 goals last year including 19 with the Phantoms after his arrival via a trade in early February.
