Flyers return Stolarz to junior team

Philadelphia Flyers top goaltending prospect Anthony Stolarz was one of four players the team released from its training camp roster Monday.

Stolarz, taken in the second round (No. 45) of the 2012 NHL Draft, made 14 saves on 15 shots in the Flyers' preseason opener Sunday, a 4-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs in a game played at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario. He played half the game, following starter Steve Mason.

Stolarz won't have a long way to go to reach his next destination. He plays his junior hockey for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League and their home rink is Budweiser Gardens.

Also released back to their junior teams were forwards Stephen Harper (Erie, OHL), Andrew Ryan (Halifax, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League). Defenseman Colin MacDonald was released from his training camp invitation.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
