The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled left wing Tyrell Goulbourne from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Goulbourne will be available for Thursday night's game against the New York Islanders for what would be his NHL debut, wearing #56.
Goulbourne, 23 (1/26/1994), is in his third season with the Phantoms. The 6-0, 200-lb native of Edmonton has recorded six goals and five assists for 11 points in 34 games with the Phantoms this season, along with 38 PIM. In 131 career AHL games, Goulbourne has recorded 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points, along with 137 PIM.
Prior to turning pro, Goulbourne played four full seasons plus parts of two more with Kelowna of the Western Hockey League. He accrued 60 goals and 65 assists for 125 points, along with 461 PIM, in 275 games for the Rockets. Goulbourne helped lead Kelowna to the 2014 WHL championship and a trip to the Memorial Cup final, where his club lost 2-1 in overtime to Oshawa.
Goulbourne was selected by the Flyers in the third round (72nd overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
