Zolnierczyk Recalled by Flyers
The Adirondack Phantoms have announced that left-wing Harry Zolinerczyk (Zoln-uhr-check) has been recalled by the Philadelphia Flyers, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.
Zolnierczyk, 25, will meet the Flyers in Winnipeg for the team's game tonight against the Jets. He was called up following an illness to Sean Couturier who did not play in the Flyers' game last night at Toronto. Zolnierczyk will wear #12 for the Flyers.
"Harry Z" has been tabbed as an alternate captain with the Phantoms this season and has 9 goals and 8 assists in 46 games this year. He is one of only three Adirondack skaters to not have missed a game so far this year along with Danny Syvret an Rob Bordson.
"I'm real happy for him," Phantoms head coach Terry Murray said, "He's been playing hard all year long and has earned this opportunity."
This will be Zolnierczyk's first NHL game of this season but he spent plenty of time up with Philadelphia last year as rookie. He scored 3 goals and 3 assists in 37 games with the Flyers including a highlight-reel caliber goal on October 18, 2011 against Ottawa in his NHL debut.
He also played in 39 games with Adirondack last year scoring 8 goals and 13 assists.
The Toronto native and former Ivy League Player of the Year out of Brown University signed with the Flyers organization as a free agent in March, 2011.
Zolinierczyk becomes the eighth player from this year's Adirondack Phantoms roster to receive a call-up to the Philadelphia Flyers joining Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo, Tye McGinn, Eric Wellwood, Andreas Lilja and Brian Boucher.
