VandeVelde will be available for Philadelphia's upcoming game on Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils.

VandeVelde began the season on an AHL contract with the Phantoms but was later signed to a one-year NHL contract by the Flyers on December 12. He has played in 17 games for the Flyers this season from December 8 through January 30, recording one assist and averaging 7:57 of time-on-ice. He has been back with the Phantoms since January 31.

He spent his first three seasons of professional hockey from 2010-13 in the Edmonton Oilers organization appearing in 28 games in the NHL scoring one goal. On his NHL career, VandeVelde has played in a total of 45 games scoring one goal and three assists.

He also played in 192 games for the Oklahoma City Barons scoring 24-36-60. His AHL numbers in 233 career games have seen him score 35 goals and 48 assists for 83 points.
