Statistics on the first page have been updated.

Does anybody know if Joacim Eriksson is injured or has been loaned? He hasn't been on Brynäs' Elitserien or junior roster for the first games.

The CHL plays already, but the Flyers prospects are still in camp, so no stats from these leagues.

I believe he played last night in a 3-2 win.

Bill Meltzer has updated his Hockeybuzz Blog:

Quote:
Flyers goaltending prospect Jocke "Sunshine" Ericsson was in goal today for the Brynäs J20 team in their 3-2 overtime loss to Björklöven. Ericsson stopped 10 of 13 shots.

Ericsson did not dress from either of the team's first two regular season games, even as the backup goalie. I'm checking up on why.

Ericsson had a bout of tonsillitis. He's fine now.

Bill, you have to spend more time in this thread throughout the year. Deckard does a great job of updating everything, but I know you're pretty close to the pulse too.

Andreas Nodl looked very good in the preseason game tonight. He had an assist on Richards' goal, the first of the game. Giroux didn't play as well, but he was very strong on the puck and he made a few nifty passes.

Luca Sbisa from the stat sheet looked like he played a great game. The Interviews after the game confirmed that as well. Vaananen and Stevens were very positive over Luca. Does Sbisa really have a chance to make the Flyers this year? I'm suprised he's at Camp actually, I thought for sure he would be with Lethbridge by now.. I bought Lethbridge vs. Chilliwack tickets already.

An article about Luca Sbisa from the Inquirer:

Quote:
[...]

"The coaching staff said everyone has a chance to make the team, so I'm going to take the chance," he said before the Flyers opened their exhibition season with a 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils last night at the Wachovia Center.

"I know it's going to be hard to make the team because there's a pretty good D here," said Sbisa, who grew up in Switzerland. "But I'm just going to take my chances, do my best, and see what happens."

[...]

"He's been impressive for a young player," coach John Stevens said. "The first thing you notice right away is his fitness level for a young player. It usually takes a few years to get to the level he's at, and he scored very well in all [fitness] categories.

"He sees the ice very well; he defends very well, and he has a lot of calm and composure for a young player."

Said Sbisa, who scored six goals and added 27 assists for Lethbridge of the Western Hockey League last season: "I feel pretty comfortable and think I can keep up with guys. I have to keep my game simple, and I have a chance."

[...]

"I just want to enjoy the moment as best I can," he said before being paired with veteran defenseman Ossi Vaananen and giving a strong account of himself.

"This is my first NHL game, so I'm very excited," Sbisa said. "I just want to play my game, show them what I can do, show them why they drafted me. I don't want to play a different game than in juniors."

[...]

"I'm glad to hear he does," Stevens said. "I used to say when I coached in the minors: 'Are all you guys going to make it? No. Should all of you expect to make it? Yes.' So if he has his sights set on making the team, that's the attitude he should have.

He's going to be evaluated like everyone else. I certainly wouldn't shut the door at this point."

Ratchuk got a goal and an a assist last night for the Phantoms. I wonder why Sbisa is still at camp with the Flyers and not Ratchuk?

My guess is that Sbisa isn't going to play with the Phantoms this year (or at least not until March at the earliest), so having Ratchuk play with his teammates makes more sense.

Because he was drafted out of the CHL, those rules apply (not eligible to be sent to the AHL until he's 20). But he can join the Phantoms on an Amateur Tryout contract when his junior season is finished, assuming that the Phantoms are still playing.

I don't think the Flyers need him to stay this early. Dmen do take longer. Eminger is a good example of rushing a guy along. Ryan Parent would be a good example of patience paying off, he's just solid and very smooth.

Phantoms won again.
And Ratchuk and Maroon had big games again

Quote:
NEWARK, NJ – Patrick Maroon and Michael Ratchuk both scored for the second time in as many games against the Lowell Devils as the Philadelphia Phantoms traveled to Newark and registered a 4-1 victory. In the first exhibition of the season for both clubs, the Phantoms hosted the Devils on Monday and came away with a 3-2 overtime win.

Maroon tabbed the lone first period goal and it came with his club operating on the power play. Planted to the left of Devils goaltender David Caruso, Maroon slung the puck to the front of the net. It took a Philly deflection off the skates of a Lowell defenseman and into the net at 11:50.

The Phantoms took a 2-0 lead just 2:39 into the middle period on Ratchuk’s second of the preseason. The nimble blueliner trailed a Rob Bellamy rush into the Devils zone. From the right wing wall, Bellamy looked off the Lowell defenders and dished the puck to Ratchuck in the high slot. He made good with a 40-foot low wrister for the 2-0 advantage.

They are all still on the same camp, there haven't been any cuts yet.
