Veteran winger Bill Guerin was released today by the Flyers, general manager Paul Holmgren announced during a conference call with the media.

Guerin was trying to make the club as a free agent.

The Flyers sent Johan Backlund, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Erik Gustafsson, Jon Kalinski, Mike Testwuide, David Laliberte and Ben Holmstrom to Phantoms.

Q: What is the latest update you can give us?

“Today we loaned Johan Backlund, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Erik Gustafsson, Jon Kalinski, Mike Testwuide, David Laliberte and Ben Holmstrom to the [Adirondack] Phantoms of the American Hockey League and we released, from a professional tryout, Bill Guerin.”

“I think a combination of [things], we do have some young kids we liked during the course of training camp and in the preseason games,” Holmgren said. “Some of those guys were loaned down today. It’s just one of those things. We need to move forward.”

On Sunday in Buffalo, Holmgren speculated he might waive Johan Backlund back to the Phantoms and was confident he would clear waivers. The club did just that, also loaning Marc-Andre Bourdon, Erik Gustafsson, Jon Kalinski, and David Laliberte to the Phantoms, as well. Laliberte, like Backlund, has to clear waivers.

Neither Leighton (bulging disk/back) nor Laperriere (post-concussion syndrome) have been placed on long-term injury (LTIR) but it is expected Laperriere will start the season on it. Updates on both are expected by then. Holmgren said a decision on Leighton was an “internal question” yet unanswered.
