Lehigh Valley, PA – The Lehigh Valley Phantoms, proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, have recalled from loan defenseman James de Haas from the Reading Royals of the ECHL.

A 23-year-old blueliner from Mississauga, Ontario, de Haas is in the midst of his first professional season and has already tallied three assists through his first four games with the Royals.

A sixth-round selection (#170 overall) by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, de Haas is coming off a four-year career at Clarkson University where he compiled 24 goals, 50 assists and 74 total points across 149 total games with the Golden Knights.

The Phantoms are back in action for a pair of games at PPL Center this weekend. First, on Friday, November 3, the rival Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins invade downtown Allentown for a 7:05 p.m. clash. Then, on Sunday, November 5, it’s Pink in the Rink presented by the American Cancer Society when the Toronto Marlies visit PPL Center in a 5:05 p.m. clash. Sunday’s game features a Pink Flashlight Giveaway FREE to the first 6,500 fans in attendance. A limited number of tickets remain for both games and can be purchased online by clicking HERE.
