Found October 19, 2011 on NHL Hot Stove:
By David Strehle NHL Hot Stove Managing Editor As speculated this morning, there was movement among the club’s overcrowded forward ranks.   Rookie wingers Zac Rinaldo and Harry Zolnierczyk were both assigned to Adirondack of the AHL, while Brayden Schenn was recalled from the Phantoms. Schenn should make his regular season debut tomorrow against the Capitals. (Photo credit: AP) Rinaldo’s demotion comes as not too much of a surprise with the return of Jody Shelley from his five-game suspension.  Due to a tremendous amount of special teams play, Rinaldo saw limited ice time in the five contests this season.  But there is no question he made an impact in that brief time frame. Zolnierczyk was recalled yesterday to fill in for Andreas Nodl, who was scratched with an undisclosed injury.  “Harry Z.” made a nice impression on the Flyers brass, scoring a highlight reel goal with a beautiful backhander over a sprawled Craig Anderson in the game’s final minute of a 7-2 victory in Ottawa.

Grading Schenn: How the Rookie Fared in his Flyers Debut

There are plenty of things that a box score or score sheet won’t tell you what actually happened in a particular game.
