Lehigh Valley Kicks Off 3-Game Road Weekend Friday in Providence
November 18, 2015
Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have returned on loan goaltender Anthony Stolarz.
A 21-year-old netminder from Edison, New Jersey, Stolarz was recalled on an emergency basis yesterday and served as Steve Mason’s backup in Philadelphia’s 3-2 shootout setback against the Los Angeles Kings last evening.
Stolarz is off to an impressive start to the 2015-2016 season having produced a 5-3-1 record in nine starts with Lehigh Valley. He currently boasts the AHL’s third-best goals-against average (1.90) coupled with the league’s seventh-best save percentage (.930).
The Phantoms return to action this Friday, November 20 when they kick off a three-game road weekend with a showdown against the Providence Bruins. Lehigh Valley then visits the Hartford Wolf Pack on Saturday before returning to Providence for a rematch with the Bruins on Sunday. 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.
The Phantoms then return to PPL Center for a pair of Thanksgiving weekend contests.
