Flyers recall eight from Glens Falls

On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Flyers recalled eight players from their AHL affiliate, for the moment still stationed in Glens Falls, to augment the parent club's active roster.

Forwards Brandon Alderson, Nick Cousins, Ben Holmstrom, Petr Straka, defensemen Mark Alt, Oliver Lauridsen, Brandon Manning and goaltender Yann Danis are now officially in reserve.

Lauridsen appeared in 15 games for the Flyers, recording two goals and an assist to go along with 34 penalty minutes during the lockout-shortened 2013 season, and Manning appeared in 10 regular-season games with the Flyers over parts of two seasons, recording two assists.

None of the remaining call-ups have suited up at any point for the Flyers, though Danis is a veteran of 53 NHL appearances for four clubs, the last being the Edmonton Oilers.

Adirondack finished up its fifth and final season in Glens Falls with a 30-38-8 record, dropping a 3-2 OT decision Friday night to Bridgeport on home ice and ended its run for good with a 2-1 defeat at Hershey on Saturday. The club relocates to Allentown for next season.
