Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that forward Olle Lycksell has been assigned to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, according to Flyers President of Hockey Operations and General Manager, Chuck Fletcher.
Lycksell, 23, made his North American pro debut last Saturday for the Flyers vs. Vancouver receiving nine minutes of time on ice. He is now eligible to make his AHL debut during the Phantoms’ Opening Weekend this Saturday and Sunday although he has already played in one preseason game with Lehigh Valley.
Lycksell scored a goal in each game of the Rookie Series at PPL Center on September 16 and September 17 when the Philadelphia Flyers swept a pair of contests against the New York Rangers.
The 5-10 lefty shot from Oskarshamn, Sweden was a Round 6 selection of the Flyers in 2017. Last year with Vaxjo HC in the SHL he scored 14-20-34 in 47 games and then tacked on two points per game in the playoffs scoring 3-5-8 in four games of the postseason.
Lycksell represented Sweden twice at the World Juniors in 2018 and 2019 winning a silver medal in 2019.
