Reading, PA - The Reading Royals, proud ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms, announced Wednesday forward Alex Krushelynski has been returned on loan to Reading from Lehigh Valley. Krushelnyski signed an AHL contract with the Phantoms this offseason.

He was named to the 2018 ECHL CCM All-Star Classic and compiled 13 goals and 27 points in 24 games for Reading last campaign. In Lehigh Valley, the native of Bloomfield Hills, MI tallied three goals and nine points in 37 games. In the 2018 Calder Cup Playoffs, Krushelnyski scored the game-winning goal in the longest contest in AHL history during the 5th OT of Game 4 of the Atlantic Division Finals to give Lehigh Valley a 2-1 win over the Charlotte Checkers.
