Flyers send Stolarz back to juniors

Flyers goaltending prospect Anthony Stolarz has been sent back to his junior team, and lucky for him, the journey isn't far.

Stolarz, a 2012 selection, saw his first NHL action last night in a 4-3 loss to Toronto in the clubs' exhibition opener. The 19-year-old gave up the eventual game-winning goal in the second period.

The game was played in London, Ontario, which happens to be the location of the Knights, his OHL club.

Stolarz went 13-3-2 with a 2.29 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and one shutout for the league champions and Memorial Cup entrant last year, after jumping from the University of Nebraska-Omaha mid-season.
