Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Michal Neuvirth was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

Neuvirth, 28, has been out since sustaining a lower-body injury during the first period of a game against the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 12.

In nine games, he is 4-2-0 with a 3.54 goals-against average and .859 save percentage.

To make room on the roster, goaltender Anthony Stolarz was sent to Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League. In four games, Stolarz was 2-0-0 with a 1.79 goals-against average, .938 save percentage and one shutout. He made his NHL debut against the Calgary Flames on Nov. 27, which was the first victory of the Flyers' 10-game winning streak, and shut out the Detroit Red Wings on Dec. 11 in his second start.

Neuvirth will back up Steve Mason (14-12-5, 2.78 goals-against average, .904 save percentage in 29 starts this season).
