Mathers Joins Phantoms Via ATO
March 19, 2013

The Adirondack Phantoms have announced that RW Derek Mathers has joined the team on an Amateur Tryout Contract (ATO).

Mathers (May-thurs), 19, comes to the Phantoms for the finish of the AHL season just like he did last year . His Major Juniors team has reached the end of their season thus he is eligible to sign the late-season ATO with the Phantoms.

He was a seventh-round selection of the Flyers in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and has participated in the past couple of Philadelphia Flyers Prospect Camps held in Voorhees, NJ in July.

The 6'3" and 225-pound tough-guy had 10 goals and 19 assists in 64 games this season with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League while accumulating 125 penalty minutes. That was down from the 177 penalty minutes he had there the prior season before the OHL implemented rules to limit fighting.

He joined Adirondack late last season and played in nine games scoring zero points while garnering 26 penalty minutes. On April 14, 2012 against the Worcester Sharks he dropped the gloves with Mike Moore in a big tilt that drew roars from the crowd at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
