Phantoms have announced that forward Chris VandeVelde
has been assigned to the team by the Philadelphia
Flyers. The transaction boosts the Phantoms' training
camp roster to 35 players.
VandeVelde signed an AHL contract with the Phantoms
a couple of weeks ago but caught some attention
during Philadelphia Flyers training camp and was
among the last cut from the team. The 26 year
old from Morrhead, MN is a lefty shot. VandeVelde
will wear #39 with the Phantoms.
The fourth-round selection of the Edmonton Oilers
in 2005 has spent the past four seasons in their
organization, mostly with Oklahoma City of the
AHL. He was a four-year standout at the University
of North Dakota from 2006-2010. Last year, VandeVelde
played in 57 games with Oklahoma City scoring
7-13-20. He also saw action in 11 games with Edmonton
registering no points. He has 28 career NHL games,
all with Edmonton, scoring 1-2-3.
