Flyers recall G Duchesne

The Flyers have recalled goaltender Jeremy Duchesne on an emergency basis from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

Duchesne will be available to play in Thursday's Flyers-Stars game at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Duchesne, 23, has appeared in two games with Adirondack this season, posting a 1-1-0 record with a 1.02 goals-against average and .981 save percentage. His win this year came in the form of a shutout in which he
stopped all 28 shots to lead the Phantoms to a 4-0 victory over the Providence Bruins on Mar. 13. This is the first time he has been recalled to the National Hockey League.

In addition to his time with the Phantoms, Duchesne has appeared in 19 games with the Flyers' ECHL affiliate, the Kalamazoo Wings, posting a 9-4-3-2 record with one shutout, a 3.20 GAA and .904 save percentage.

A native of Silver Spring, Md., Duchesne was originally selected by the Flyers in the fourth round (119th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
