April 20, 2017
Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have reassigned defenseman Phil Myers from the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) to Lehigh Valley.
A 20-year-old blueliner from Moncton, New Brunswick, Myers is coming off an impressive four-year stint at Rouyn-Noranda where he compiled 29 goals, 63 assists and 92 total points across 203 career games with the Huskies. A 6’5″, 202-pound defender, he produced better than a point per game this year with 35 points (10 goals, 25 assists) in just 34 games.
A member of Team Canada’s silver medal-winning team at the 2017 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, Myers was signed by Philadelphia to a three-year, entry-level contract on September 21, 2015.
The Phantoms kick off the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs with Games 1 and 2 this Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22 at PPL Center against the rival Hershey Bears. Puck drop for both nights is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. and fans are encouraged to wear orange to each and every Phantoms home game throughout the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs as part of the team’s “Orange Out.”
