Red-Hot Lehigh Valley Continues 3-Game Road Weekend Tonight in Hartford
November 21, 2015
Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have reassigned defenseman Jesper Pettersson from the Reading Royals of the ECHL to the Phantoms.
A 21-year-old blueliner from Stockholm, Sweden, Pettersson has split time this season between Lehigh Valley (6 games, 1 assist, 2 penalty minutes) and Reading (5 games, 2 penalty minutes, +3). A seventh-round selection (198th overall) by the Flyers in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, he produced 2 goals, 5 assists, 7 points and 35 penalty minutes in 51 games with the Phantoms last year.
Red-hot Lehigh Valley is back in action tonight as the team continues its three-game road weekend with a showdown against the Hartford Wolf Pack. Following a 4-1 victory over the Providence Bruins last evening, the Phantoms have won three of their last four games and have claimed seven of a possible eight standings points during that stretch. Lehigh Valley concludes its busy weekend on Sunday in a rematch with the Bruins. Catch all the action on FOX 1470-AM, online at fox1470.com or via the iHeartRadio app beginning with “Countdown to Faceoff” 45 minutes before puck drop.
