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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
