Hartnell's injury has been revised to an upper body injury.

Lecavalier will not return tonight, seen limping.

MRI's for both Saturday.

Raffl, Akeson or McGinn the likely call up?

Hopefully it's not too serious but they can't go to Detroit and play Rosehill and Newbury

I think we should call up Raffl and Laughton while Hartnell and Lecavalier are injured. Roll with

Schenn-Giroux-Voracek
Read-Couturier-Simmonds
Raffl-Laughton-Talbot
Rosehill-Hall-Rinaldo

Edit: Hopefully Raffl will show Holmgren enough that will keep him with the Flyers so we can bump Talbot down to the fourth line when everyone is healthy

Oh crap. I forgot about that. Well I just hope whoever gets the call will find a way to stick around as a third line winger. Im getting tired of seeing one of Newbury and Rosehill every game, as well as Talbot on the third line

I'm surprised to come on the site and not see a "confirmed with link: Raffl called up from the Phantoms" thread yet.

Isn't he able to be called up as an emergency? Emergency call up?

Pretty sure it can't interrupt his junior schedule. On my phone so don't know if they are playing or not tonight.

There is a filing and approval process by the NHL for all contracts.

The way this team is playing there might be an emergency every week.

I hope they call up 50/50 (Raffl) and Akeson. A little young blood / new blood could get them going. And replace Mez with Gus.

Raffl would be nice to see called up, I thought Newbury played pretty well his first game to earn some fourth line minutes.

Two forwards injured?
Must be the hockey gods' answer to Homer carrying 8 defensemen on the roster

The phantoms have scored more goals in 2 games than the Flyers 5. Whoever gets the call can only bring some much needed good mood and a swift wind to this locker room.

5 games into an 82 game season with a coaching change only two games ago, I don't think it's time to start talking about Ekblad. Have a little faith, things will turn around.

I do. It was kind of a facetious comment.

Not surprising. He's a guy that's been in the league since 18, isn't a big guy, and plays a style that isn't sustainable for a 15 plus year career. This may be the signing in a series of bad signings that finally burns Homer.

I know what you mean on paper, with the style and time he has been in the NHL... but he is a pretty damn big guy, 6'2 and 215 aint small even in the NHL for a forward. Apart from Rosehill, Vinny and Voracek I would say he is our biggest forward (as Couts is still quite skinny.)

Also he is an ironman so far frankly, even with his style, apart from last year he has hardly missed any games in his career (~70 in 12 years)... but that can obviously all change with age or one injury. But that can be said for anyone really.

The contract was probably 2 years too long IMO though, but so long as he has no serious injuries I imagine it will be trade-able for the next ~2 years at least. (I know... NMC, but in 'real life' a lot of guys waive them if they know they are no longer wanted.)

Watched some of Barrie vs Osh last night. Ekblad is captain, wears a very dark beard, and looks like a keeper.
