Flyers have announced that five players have been
recalled from the Adirondack Phantoms, according
to general manager Paul Holmgren. Joining the
26-player training camp roster in Voorhees, NJ
will be Sean Couturier, Tye McGinn, Zac Rinaldo,
Brayden Schenn and Eric Wellwood.
The five players have all been scratched from
the lineup the past two games this weekend while
they were already in Voorhees preparing for the
camp which started today. Philadelphia opens their
NHL regular season on Saturday against the Pittsburgh
Sean Couturier (31 GP, 10-18-28, 16 PIM) concluded
his stay with the Phantoms in impressive fashion.
The 20-year-old center slammed home the game-winner
in overtime on January 5th against the Connecticut
Whale in a 2-1 thriller. His goal came in the
same building where he first attended a hockey
game as a baby. His Dad, Syvlain Couturier, played
for the Adirondack Red Wings in 1992 shortly after
Sean was born. Couturier scored 13 goals in 77
games with Philadelphia last year and then added
a hat trick in a playoff game against Pittsburgh.
Tye McGinn (30 GP, 9-4-13, 52 PIM) has increased
his scoring production this year and has found
a home in front of the net using his big body
to screen goalies and dig out rebounds. McGinn
is the only one of the group who has not played
in the NHL but his success in the first half of
this season has earned him the opportunity in
this camp. His older brother, Jamie McGinn, plays
in the NHL for the Colorado Avalanche.
Zac Rinaldo (31 GP, 2-3-5, 92 PIM) used his time
back in the American Hockey League to work on
additional aspects to his game. Last year he spent
most of the season with Philadelphia racking up
232 PIM in 66 games. The year before that, as
a 20-year-old rookie with the Phantoms, he had
331 PIM in 60 games.
Brayden Schenn (33 GP, 13-20-33, 15 PIM) was the
top scorer on the Phantoms this year. The #5 overall
selection in the 2009 draft by the Los Angeles
Kings now gets to join his brother, Luke Schenn,
who was acquired by the Flyers from the Maple
Leafs in the off-season. Schenn's season highlight
with Adirondack came on November 14, 2012 when
he registered a hat trick against the Manchester
Monarchs and the organization that had traded
him a couple summers ago. Schenn had 12 goals
with Philadelphia last season in 54 games and
also 6 more with the Phantoms in just 7 games.
Eric Wellwood (29 GP, 4-5-9, 6 PIM) had a good
stretch recently of three goals in four games
as he got his scoring touch back on track. Last
year with Philadelphia he played in 24 games scoring
5-4-9 and also played in 11 playoff games. The
22-year-old had also scored 4 goals with the Phantoms
in 29 games in the AHL. Wellwood's debut season
in 2010-11 he scored 16 goals with Adirondack.
His older brother, Kyle Wellwood, is an NHL veteran
of 450 games currently with the Winnipeg Jets.
