Laliberte called up to replace injured Briere

New, comments

The Flyers have called up David Laliberte from Adirondack.  He is available to play tomorrow afternoon against Carolina.

Laliberte is a 6-1 right wing that as of last week had been on the Phantoms top line.  Paired with Pat Maroon and Jon Matsumoto, Laliberte has one goal to go with five helpers.  This line had seemed to be clicking as of late, with a solid forecheck leading to many opportunities.  Laliberte plays both ends well, and is one of the guys the Phantoms were counting on for scoring.  His five helpers make up for a lack of scoring as of late.

Briere, as discussed earlier, is out of the lineup tomorrow after leaving Friday's practice with one of those pesky "lower body injuries."
