The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have recalled defenseman Ryan Parent and forward Jared Ross from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms.
Parent, 21, has one assist and 18 penalty minutes in 15 games with the Phantoms this season. He was assigned to the Phantoms from the Flyers on December 28, 2008, after missing the first 36 games of this season recovering from surgery performed on his right shoulder on October 16, 2008.
The 6'2", 205-pound defenseman was scoreless in 22 regular season games for the Flyers last season. He recorded a goal and seven assists for eight points and 42 penalty minutes in 53 games for the Phantoms during the 2007-08 season.
Parent was acquired by the Flyers, along with Scottie Upshall and a first and third round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, from the Nashville Predators in exchange for Peter Forsberg on February 15, 2007.
Ross, 26, is scoreless with two penalty minutes in five games with the Flyers this season. In 38 games with the Phantoms this season he has 19 goals, leading the team, and 42 points, tying him for the team lead.
Ross was named as the Charter Communications Most Valuable Player of this year’s AHL All-Star Game in Worcester, Massachusetts on January 26, recording a goal and six assists for seven points with PlanetUSA. His six assists and seven points are new AHL records.
Last season for the Phantoms, the Huntsville, Alabama native had 23 goals and 39 assists for 62 points in 67 games to lead the team in scoring.
Ross signed as a free agent with the Flyers on April 8, 2008.
