Nodl a Flyer no more among roster moves

The story of Andreas Nodl's NHL career will be written and finished somewhere else, as the young forward has been claimed off waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Nodl was sparingly used this season due to a logjam of contracts, and only tallied one assist in 2 games thus far this year. The emergence of younger talent such as Matt Read and Sean Couturier surely blocked the Austrian's path towards more playing time.

Philly's second-round pick in 2006 played collegiately at St. Cloud State, making his Flyers debut during the 2008-09 campaign. He posted his best numbers last year, with 11 goals and 22 points in 67 games. All told, the 24-year-old Vienna native dressed for 127 NHL games and recorded 12 goals with 28 points.

In addition, the club recalled forward Brayden Schenn and defenseman Kevin Marshall from Adirondack of the AHL.

Schenn has been rehabbing his broken foot, suffered on October 26 at Montreal, and is within the original timetable of 4-to-6 weeks of recovery. Marshall went scoreless in two games during a recent call-up.
