The Flyers announced on Wednesday they have sent defenseman Brandon Manning back to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The signing of veteran defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo last week solidified the Flyers blue line enough to send Manning back down.
Manning, 24, appeared in two games for the Flyers averaging 11:45 of ice time and picking up one assist. He has one goal and four assists for five points in six games for the Phantoms this season. In 73 games for the Phantoms last season, the defenseman score eight goals and added 23 assists for 31 points.
