Versatile left winger Eric Wellwood, who had a goal, two assists, and a plus-6 rating in five earlier games with the Flyers , was recalled from the Phantoms and rejoined the big-league club on Saturday.
"He's smart, plays with speed, and is a good checker," coach Peter Laviolette said after Saturday's practice in Voorhees. "Every time he's been up here, he's done a nice job for us."
This is the fourth time Wellwood has been recalled this season.
"I'll do it any day," said a smiling Wellwood, referring to the long car ride from Adirondack to rejoin the Flyers . "One day I can be here and the next I could be gone, so I just enjoy the days I have here and don't look past tomorrow, and we'll just see what happens."
The Flyers decided to add a player because left winger James van Riemsdyk is sidelined for the rest of the regular season with a broken left foot.
