by Staff Writer / Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers announced today that they have recalled center Ben Holmstrom from their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. In addition, defenseman Andreas Lilja has rejoined the Flyers following his conditioning stint with the Phantoms, after being loaned this past Friday.


Holmstrom, who is a native of Colorado Springs, CO, will join the team and be available for the Flyers-Avalanche game on Monday at the Pepsi Center in Colorado.

He has appeared in one game for the Flyers this season, a 3-2 victory on Nov. 2 at Buffalo.

With the Phantoms, he ranks third on the team in scoring with 16 points and is tied for second with eight goals through 25 games, and currently has a three-game goal-scoring streak.

Lilja appeared in one game with the Phantoms, a 3-1 loss to the defending Calder Cup champion Binghamton Senators on Friday.

Lilja had been sidelined since Nov. 25, when he suffered a high-ankle sprain in the Flyers' 3-1 win vs. Montreal on Black Friday.
