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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
