  • Phantoms get new ECHL affiliate

    I initially wrote this blog post more than a week ago, but I forgot to hit the publish button and just noticed my mistake. My apologies for getting this out late.

    The Philadelphia Flyers have entered into a minor league affiliation agreement with the Greenville (S.C.) Road Warriors. This replaces the affiliation with the*Kalamazoo Wings*last season. The Flyers will share the affiliation with the New York Rangers.

    I’m not sure it really matters where the ECHL affiliate is, since we saw the Flyers stash players in a*couple different places last season. But for what it’s worth, Greenville is the place. My only concern is the Flyers finding a place or places*where multiple goalies can get enough*ice time, as any combination of Brian Stewart, Nic Riopel and Sergei Bobrovsky could be playing in the ECHL if no one gets moved before the season. My guess is Stewart and Riopel are the most likely.
