A fourth-round pick by Carolina Hurricanes in the 2001 NHL Draft, Zepp signed with Philadelphia last summer after spending the past six seasons with Eisbaeren Berlin of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. Before this season, Zepp had not played in North America since the 2004-05 season.
The Flyers recalled Zepp on Friday from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League after Steve Mason sustained an upper-body injury at practice. Mason will be re-evaluated Monday.
Zepp went 8-5-4 in 17 games with Lehigh Valley this season with a 2.70 goals-against average and.918 save percentage.
