The team announced on Wednesday they have placed center Chris VandeVelde on waivers. If he clears waivers, he is likely to join to the Phantoms in Adirondack. The 26-year-old has played in 17 games for the Flyers this season registering one assist and eight shots on goal.
This is good news for Flyers fans as it appears injured forward Zac Rinaldo looks to be close to returning to the team. Rinaldo has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain on January 8th against the Montreal Canadiens, a game in which he scored his first goal of the season and fought Brandon Prust.
The Flyers are back in action tomorrow night in Anaheim taking on the Ducks at 10:00 pm.
