Flyers send suspended Zolnierczyk to AHL

Philadelphia Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk, serving a four-game NHL suspension, has been sent to the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

Zolnierczyk was suspended March 3 for a charging incident during a game against the Ottawa Senators on March 2, and has served two games of the suspension. Zolnierczyk will be eligible to play in the American Hockey League.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren told the team's website, "When and whether [Zolnierczyk] is recalled [to complete the suspension] will be dictated by the 23-man roster at that time."

Zolnierczyk has one assist and 36 penalty minutes in six NHL games this season. He has 17 points and 54 penalty minutes in 46 AHL games.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
