receives his second career call-up to the Flyers and first this season. It’ll be the second consecutive year that he joins the Flyers for the last game of the year – he was recalled on April 22, 2013 and made his NHL debut in last season’s finale against Ottawa, scoring his first NHL goal on his first NHL shot. In 70 games for the Phantoms this year, he’s recorded 24 goals and 40 assists for 64 points. The goals and points are a career high, and he’s one assist away from tying that career high. This season marks the third consecutive year that Akeson has led the Phantoms in scoring.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
