Flyers assign Walker to Phantoms

Flyers defenseman Matt Walker has cleared waivers and been assigned to the team’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

Walker, 30, has appeared in four games for the Flyers this season, all in the month of January.

He missed the first 3 ½ months of the season due to a pair of hip surgeries.  The first took place on October 20 to repair a torn labrum and bony impingement in his right hip, while the second was performed on December 16 to remove inflamed synovial tissue in his left hip.
