Cal Heeter Returned to Phantoms
The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that they have returned goalie Cal Heeter on loan to the Adirondack Phantoms following his brief two-day call-up. Ray Emery had been sidelined with a lower-body injury.
Heeter joined the Flyers last weekend and dressed in Philadelphia's games on Saturday and Sunday as back-up to Steve Mason. It was Heeter's second career call-up to the Flyers and his first this season. The St. Louis, Missouri native has yet to appear in any regular-season game-action in the NHL.

25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite group of just 9 other active markets who can make such a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an old-school feel that began with the Adirondack Red Wings in 1979. In their 20-year tenure at the Glens Falls Civic Center through 1999, the Red Wings won four Calder Cups. The Adirondack Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-10 and are in their fifth season bringing exciting AHL action to the North Country.
