On Thursday afternoon, at around 3:30 PM EST, the Flyers made a very important announcement:

The news comes after an MRI was performed on the 26 year old defenseman after he missed the Flyers’ win at home against the Capitals, having played 16:14 against the Hurricanes in an overtime loss. In Gostisbehere’s absence, Mark Friedman was called up from the Phantoms, playing 11:49 total on Wednesday.

This was followed by even more news:

Kase will join the Flyers for the first time since his initial call up during a stretch of games in which he scored his first NHL goal against his brother’s Anaheim Ducks at home in front of his family, truly a moment to cherish.

As for Vorobyev, the now 23 year old has seen a mixed bag of performances in his short NHL career so far, and will join one time teammate Morgan Frost in Lehigh Valley.
