Flyers recall VandeVelde, Rinaldo out

by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers
** UPDATE: VandeVelde will be inserted into the lineup for Zac Rinaldo, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Rinaldo has appeared in the last 10 games for the Flyers after recovering from a high-ankle sprain he suffered on Jan. 8 which caused him to miss 10 games.

So far this season, Rinaldo has two points (1g-1a) in 54 games, while leading the team in penalty minutes (117) and ranking second in hits (170). 

The Flyers announced that they have recalled forward Chris VandeVelde from their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

VandeVelde will be available for tonight's Flyers-Devils game at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m., CSN & 97.5 The Fanatic).

After signing a one-year contract on Dec. 12, VandeVelde has appeared in 17 games for the Flyers this season, recording one assist and averaging 7:57 of time-on-ice.

The 26-year-old forward has appeared in 39 games with Adirondack this season, his first with the Phantoms, posting nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points.
