The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled defensemen
Matt Konan and Brandon Manning from the Adirondack
Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.
Konan has been assigned #34, while Manning will
wear #32. Both are available to play in tonight's
Flyers-Rangers game at the Wells Fargo Center.
For Konan, if he is in the line-up, it will be
his NHL debut.
The 21-year-old Matt Konan is
in his first season of professional hockey, appearing
in 42 games with Adirondack where he has two goals
and four assists for six points. He also appeared
in five games with the club's ECHL affiliate,
the Trenton Titans this season.
The Flyers signed the Tustin, Cal. native Konan
to an entry-level contract on Apr. 2, 2012 after
five seasons with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the
Western Hockey League.
Brandon Manning earns his second
recall with the Flyers in his career and first
this season. He has 21 points (6g-15a) in 65 games
with the Phantoms this season, his second with
the club. Earlier this season, he represented
the Adirondack Phantoms at the AHL All-Star Classic
The 22-year old Manning appeared in four games
with the Flyers last season, going scoreless and
averaging 13:43 of ice time.
The recalls comes on the heels of defenseman
Kent Huskins leaving last night's Flyers-Canadiens
game after suffering a concussion and the announcement
that defenseman Bruno Gervais is out indefinitely
with upcoming surgery on a torn stomach muscle.
