Defenseman Samuel Morin Recalled by Flyers

Playoff Push Continues This Week With 3 Games at PPL Center

April 4, 2017

Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have recalled from loan defenseman Samuel Morin. A 21-year-old blueliner from St. Henri, Quebec, Morin is in the midst of his second professional season and has recorded three goals, 12 assists, 15 points and a team-leading 120 penalty minutes in 68 games with the Phantoms this year.

A first-round selection (#11 overall) by Philadelphia in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, he’s appeared in all but two of Lehigh Valley’s 146 games over the last two seasons and has compiled seven goals, 27 assists, 34 points and 238 total penalty minutes to date. Morin made his professional debut on October 10, 2015 and netted his first pro goal on November 22, 2015 as part of a 5-2 win over the Providence Bruins.

The Phantoms continue their push towards the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs with three games at PPL Center this week. Lehigh Valley returns to the frozen surface on Wednesday, April 5 as it welcomes the rival Hershey Bears to downtown Allentown. The action then continues with highly-anticipated contests on Friday, April 7 against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Saturday, April 8 versus the Springfield Thunderbirds.
