BREAKING: Manning to Philadelphia

Recommended Posts

In advance of their game tonight against the Florida Panthers, the Flyers recalled a pair of skaters from their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

Left wing Harry Zolnierczyk and defenseman Brandon Manning will be in Philadelphia for tonight's game and will be available to play.

Zolnierczyk has played in 36 games for the Flyers this season, registering three goals and two assists. He was sent back to the Phantoms after the Flyers' Feb. 5 loss to the New York Rangers.

Manning has yet to play in a game at the NHL level. In 32 games with the Phantoms this year, the 21-year-old defenseman has four goals and five assists. His recall is a bit more curious than Zolnierczyk's, because the Flyers already recalled defenseman Erik Gustafsson from the Phantoms last week. That Manning is with the Flyers could simply mean he's here to provide depth, but it could indicate the team has another injury on defense.

Considering the recent bevy of injuries, that the Flyers have made a pair of recalls does not come as a surprise. The Flyers will be without defenseman Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros for the third straight game against the Panthers on Thursday, and both Jakub Voracek and Jaromir Jagr are questionable.

Voracek is under concussion watch after taking a shoulder-to-the-head hit from Red Wing Niklas Kronwall Tuesday night. Jagr injured his hip in that game, as well.

The call-ups mean the Flyers have hit the maximum number of recalls they're allowed between the trade deadline and end of the season (four). In addition to Zolnierczyk, Manning and Gustafsson, the Flyers called up winger Eric Wellwood last week.

Oh my god this topic is so funny because everyone will think it's Peyton Manning when they read the title but then they open the thread and it's totally not!

<_<

I actually thought that Eli Manning was traded to the Iggles. :P

When I saw willmorris' name next to this thread, I assumed the Eagles had signed some low-level free agent who just happened to be named "Manning." :shrug:

This should be the only allowable response to willmorristrollbot posts.

/sarcasm

Smart is believing half of what you hear. Genius is knowing which half.
