Flyers sign Anthony Stolarz (London/OHL) and free agent RW Brandon Alderson to ELC

FLYERS INK STOLARZ & ALDERSON
Quote:
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced that the club has signed 2012 2nd-round draft pick, goaltender Anthony Stolarz, of the Ontario Hockey League's London Knights and forward Brandon Alderson of the OHL's Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Stolarz, was selected 45th overall in this past summer's NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound goaltender is currently playing for the Knights after beginning the season with the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

With London, Stolarz has posted a 9-2-1 record with a 2.17 goals-against average and .926 save percentage in 14 appearances.

Alderson is an undrafted right wing who is in his fourth season in the OHL, spending his two seasons with the Sarnia Sting, before coming to the Soo Greyhounds.

This season he has posted career-high in goals (25), assists (32) and points (57), and ranks third on the team in scoring.
  • Shoots: Right
  • Height: 6.04"
  • Weight: 202
  • Birthdate: 1992-01-22
  • Hometown:Oakville, ON

Alderson signed by NHL's Philadelphia Flyers
Quote:
The Soo Greyhounds Hockey Club is extremely pleased to announce that right-winger BRANDON ALDERSON has been signed to a 3-year entry-level contract by the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers earlier today.

“Obviously as an organization we are thrilled for Brandon. Particularly in the last number of months he has showed the consistency and production needed to earn a National Hockey League contract” began Hounds GM Kyle Dubas.

“As an organization it is our mandate to maximize each player’s potential both on and off the ice and in his time here, Brandon has been one of our best academic achievers and today is the culmination of his efforts on the ice in signing a contract with an organization as prestigious as the Philadelphia Flyers.”

The 21-year old Oakville, ON product was excited yet humble when contacted by soogreyhounds.com.
“I mean you can’t really describe the feeling of taking the next step of the childhood dream, and to be honest I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet especially with having two big games this weekend to focus on. Being signed by a NHL team is every kids dream and to finally have done that after 21 years it’s truly a great accomplishment and really a dream come true

” started Alderson.

“I think the Philadelphia Flyers organization has a great history and tradition which is an honor to be a part of. The Flyers are such an elite and respected organization around the NHL and its truly amazing feeling to be a part of that. You can just tell when you watch a Flyers game that the atmosphere and fan base is passionate there which is really exciting to see especially coming from a hockey town like the Soo” continued Alderson.

I figured they would wait until after his season was over to sign Stolarz.

I wonder if they want him to have some chemistry with Cousins perhaps?

im guessing Stolarz contract will slide. No clue about this Alderson kid.
Looks like Holmgren expected Sestito to get claimed with the timing of this.

Eventually the team will address that. OHL fans can offer opinions, too.

He was/is a roommate and linemate to Cousins.

He's big. 6'4" 202 and according to that article above, seems like he's got some good defensive ability too. His offense is unimpressive for an overager, but plays on the same team as Cousins, and has some hands/defensive ability/size, making him a possible bottom 6 player in the future.

they had to notice him while watching cousins or cousins may have said something to pique their interest

he's huge and fast with a bit of a scoring touch, could be a nice 3rd/4th liner

Haha. Nice.

Also, wow. I figured Stolarz would be signed much later.

I can see Anthony as the type of goalie development we need and a solid backup in 3-4 years.

Thanks for the replies guys/gals. Ok, so maybe another McGinn type? I really like what Homer is starting to do with a lot of the prospects. The organization now has a lot of guys that seem to play a two-way game with size. Not too much flash, but you can never have enough two-way players in the system.

On the trade rumors section someone said this is the first day that ELC can be signed and not start until next year. So we may still have a contract slot open for this season, right?

Flyers sign Stolarz and RW Brandon Alderson.

I'll let someone else find the link.

Alderson is Nick Cousins' teammate.

Big guy too.

EDIT:
#Flyers have signed 2012 2nd rd pick G Anthony Stolarz (London/OHL) and free agent RW Brandon Alderson to entry-level contracts. #NHL

Both ELCs. They go into effect next year. We're at 50 limit for this year at the moment. Stolarz will likely slide as well. Doubt he goes to the AHL next year.

The Flyers system seems to have too many no-way players.

I don't understand the rush to sign this kid.

Really? For next year? I don't think so. Let me look.

EDIT:

Forwards Roster: (10)
Briere, Voracek, Hartnell, Giroux, Schenn, Talbot, Simmonds, Couturier, Read, McGinn

Defensemen Roster: (8)
Timonen, Coburn, Schenn, Grossmann, Meszaros, Pronger, Gervais, Bourdon

Goaltenders Roster: (1)
Bryzgalov

Forwards Prospect: (8)
Laughton, Johnston, Cousins, Brown, Akeson, Noebels, Mathers, Aldrerson

Defensemen Prospect: (5)
Konan, Mangene, Syvret, Eddy, Hostetter

Goaltenders Prospect: (2)
Heeter, Stolarz

We're at 34/50 already committed next year.

Forward RFAs: (4)
Wahl, Harper, Wellwood, Holmstrom, Zolnierczyk, Rinaldo

Defensemen RFAs: (2)
Kessel, Manning, Lauridsen

Forward UFAs: (1)
Gagne, Fedotenko, Shelley, Knuble

Defensemen UFAs: (0)
Walker, Foster, Lilja

Goaltenders UFAs: (1)
Leighton, Boucher

Assuming we sign those guys in bold, we're at 42/50. Now slide risk Stolarz and Alderson, and we're back at 40/50.

We have room next year for the first time in forever if Holmgren doesn't go buying up ALL THE PROSPECTS! Which he will...

Probably as others have stated, it gives Cousins a familiar linemate to start the season with in the AHL next year. The article above also says he's really picked his game up since the new coaching staff took over the team.

Alderson is an overager so he'll most likely be in the AHL next yr but Stollie will slide since he's going back to juniors. Assuming we don't re-sign a bunch of the junk players that are gone after this yr we should be at 41 contracts based on Chris' breakdown of the situation

I believe he was talking about this year, but at least we now also have a chart for next year to look at potential holes and moves within the organization. Should we move that chart to the future rosters thread?

I was talking about this year. But yeah it will be nice to have some flexability for next season. I dont think Blake Kessel and Harper will be back.
Ill mention his name again because I really hope Holmgren takes a run at him this spring.
