The Philadelphia Flyers have reached an affiliation agreement with the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL for the 2013-14 season, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced Thursday.
Under the agreement, the Flyers will be able to assign players to Greenville who are under contract either to the Flyers or to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. Players under ECHL contracts with Greenville can be called up to Adirondack as opportunities present themselves.
The Flyers were affiliated with Greenville during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons. Current members of the Flyers organization who have spent time with the Road Warriors include defensemen Marc-Andre Bourdon (2010-11), Cullen Eddy (2010-2012) and Steven Delisle (2012-13).
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
