The Flyers have called up goalie Carter Hutton, freshly signed from UMass-Lowell, to replace the injured Johan Backlund on the Flyers' roster.
Hutton was signed last week by the Flyers, straight from college.
Hutton, 24, played his college hockey at the University of Massachusetts Lowell of Hockey East. The Ontario native lead Hockey East in goals-against average (2.04), save percentage (0.928) and shutouts (4) last season. He posted a 13-12-2 record in 27 games played.
Hutton completed his four-year career at UMass-Lowell as the school's all-time leader in shutouts (10) and goals-against average (2.33) and is tied for the career lead in save percentage (0.913)
