Hextall signs Hextall to minor-league deal

Flyers GM Ron Hextall didn't have to look far in his quest to fill out the Lehigh Valley Phantoms' roster.

That player was found right in his own family.

On Monday, Brett Hextall -- son of Ron -- signed an American Hockey League contract for the upcoming season.

The 26-year-old native of Philadelphia spent last season with the Portland Pirates, his third with the franchise, accumulating 11 goals and 12 assists in 59 games.

Hextall played collegiately at North Dakota, totaling 39 goals and 42 assists over 125 games from 2008-11.

The younger Hexy's birthday, April 2, 1988, occurred when his father started in goal at Quebec with the Flyers posting a 7-4 victory at Le Colisee. The elder Hextall stopped 32-of-36 shots that night.
