Flyers make initial roster moves; Gostisbehere, Morin spared

The first wave of roster transactions have been made by the Philadelphia Flyers, in the wake of the club's 1-1-1 shotgun start to the preseason which culminated in a 4-0 loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Tuesday night.

Returned to their respective junior clubs are:  forward Nicholas Aube-Kubel to Val D'Or
(QMJHL), center Radel Fazleev to Calgary (WHL) and forward Travis Sanheim to
Calgary (WHL).

Assigned to Lehigh Valley of the AHL are: forwards Brandon Alderson, Nick Cousins, Austin Fyten, Kevin Goumas, Matt Hatch, Brett Hextall, Andrew Johnston, Derek Mathers,
Marcel Noebels, Petr Straka, defensemen Mark Alt, Steven Delisle, Brett
Flemming, Robert Hagg, Maxim Lamarche, Jesper Pettersson, goaltenders Connor
Knapp, Martin Ouellette and Anthony Stolarz.

Former Union College defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is getting an extended look, as is Samuel Morin -- who apparently has gained enough positive notice in a short time frame when measured against Michael Del Zotto's struggles.

Philadelphia's next exhibition contest will be tomorrow night against the New Jersey Devils on South Broad Street.
