Lehigh Valley, PA – The Philadelphia Flyers, parent club of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, have returned on loan defenseman Robert Hagg from Sweden to the Phantoms.

In seven games with his native country, the 6’2″, 203-pound defender amassed two assists, two penalty minutes and 15 shots on goal. Sweden was handed a 4-2 setback to Slovakia in the Bronze Medal Game yesterday.

All told, he’s produced three goals, 14 assists, 17 points and 38 penalty minutes in 38 total AHL games between Adirondack and Lehigh Valley.
