Flyers recall Chris Conner from Phantoms


Conner, 31, was the Phantoms' early-season leader in goals scored with four, and was second on the team in points with eight through eight games. He also has 180 NHL games, and 50 points, to his name. He's been recalled by the Flyers, who will need at least one extra forward in their lineup as they head out to western Canada this week with Sean Couturier and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare still injured. Whether Conner will be a healthy scratch or will replace someone (likely Vincent Lecavalier) in the lineup remains to be seen.
