The Adirondack Phantoms’ season concluded this past weekend, and, since there will be no playoff hockey in the Glens Falls Civic Center, the Flyers decided to give four guys one last shot at glory.
On Monday afternoon, forwards Jason Akeson, Scott Laughton, Tye McGinn and defenseman Matt Konan were recalled to Philadelphia.
The Orange and Black have three games remaining on their 2013 schedule, beginning with Tuesday’s home game/reunion with Jaromir Jagr and the Boston Bruins.
Akeson led Terry Murray’s club with 53 points (20G, 33A) in 62 games after being recalled from Trenton of the ECHL.
Laughton made the leap from Oshawa in Canadian juniors to the Phantoms, posting a goal and three points in six appearances. He spent five games here without recording a point at the start of the season before being shipped back to the Ontario Hockey League. The 18-year-old can’t actually play since one more appearance would burn up a year of his initial entry-level deal.
McGinn is back once more with the big club, having struck for three goals and five points in 18 games for the Flyers and 26 points in 46 games at the AHL level this year.
Konan saw his initial call-up last week, but was scratched. Once again, if he sets foot on the ice, it will be his first NHL action.
