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.
It seems like I'm kind of making it a little difficult on myself here the last two games.
