Mika Pyorala sent to Adirondack

14

As announced on the broadcast today, Mika Pyorala has been sent to the Adirondack Phantoms. A healthy scratch for the better part of the last two months, Pyorala will get the playing time in Adirondack that he so desperately needs to continue to condition his game to the North American style. He has a two-way contract, so he doesn't have to clear waivers. His 500k cap hit comes off the Flyers books for now.

3

The Adirondack Phantoms have sent goaltender and 2009 Flyers draft pick Nic Riopel to Moncton of the QMJHL, his junior team. Riopel sat behind Johan Backlund on the depth chart, but still had the opportunity to start in 10 games for the Phantoms this season, including their opener. He was 4-6-0 with a 3.35 GAA in those starts. The Phantoms also sent goalie Michael-Lee Teslak to Wheeling of the ECHL. Backlund and former NHLer John Grahame are the two current goalies in Adirondack.

Report: Flyers toss out a contract, Betts signing imminent?

CSN Philly is reporting that the Flyers have traded the contract of prospect Patrik Hersley to Nashville for future considerations, bumping the team's number of contracts down to 48, two away from the limit. The only conceivable reason for the team to trade away a contract for nothing is to make room for another one, and in this case, offering a contract to Blair Betts seems like the possible outcome. Stay tuned for more.
