Flyers have reportedly signed 5 new players. These include 4 new forwards: Lukas Kaspar, Krys Kolanos, Mika Pyorala and Jason Ward, with a new defenseman Joey Mormina to all one-year contracts. This is basically the Flyers signing some AHL-caliber talent that have some NHL experience in order to bolster our current roster with some depth. The Philadelphia Flyers official website has the full story and details about the new players. Kolanos, Pyorala, and Kaspar all have had some NHL time and according to Homer, “each player solidifies our organizational depth at the forward position”.
Don’t expect them to be lacing their skates at the Wachovia Center much next year. These guys will probably be on the Phantoms and other minor league affiliates considering guys like Matsumoto, Nodl, and Ross are next in line to play some NHL time.
