The Philadelphia Flyers
on Thursday recalled defenseman Brandon Manning
and forward Harry Zolnierczyk
from the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League.
The Flyers, who play host to the Florida Panthers
on Thursday at Wells Fargo Center, are without defensemen Kimmo Timonen
and Andrej Meszaros
due to lower-body injuries. Forward James van Riemsdyk
is out 4-6 weeks following foot surgery earlier this week and Jacob Voracek (head) and Jaromir Jagr
(hip) are questionable after being injured in Tuesday's game against Detroit.
Zolnierczyk, 24, has 3 goals and 5 points in 36 games with the Flyers this season. He last played Feb. 5 at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers. Manning, 21, has yet to play in an NHL game. In 32 games with the Phantoms this year, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound defenseman has 4 goals and 9 points.
