Philadelphia flyers | update: woman, 28, dies in 3-alarm fire in allentown that destroyed multiple row homes; several people injured [video], philadelphia flyers, subscriber only, philadelphia flyers | with sting of last year’s playoff loss still fresh, phantoms prepare to kick off 10th season in lehigh valley.
When PPL Center last hosted a meaningful American Hockey League game, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms dropped a 5-2 decision to the Charlotte Checkers in the 2022-23 season home finale.
And that was a darn shame.
Not just because the Phantoms lost, but because the Phantoms ended the season as the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, and Charlotte ended as the third seed. Due to the distance between the teams, Charlotte hosted all three games of the opening round series between the teams, and ended up needing all three games to eliminate the Phantoms.
Phantoms fans were not rewarded with a home game, and that was frustrating.
The Phantoms will kick off their 10th season in the Lehigh Valley at the PPL Center 7:05 p.m. Saturday when they host the Cleveland Monsters, and then turn around to host the Belleville Senators at 1:05 p.m. Sunday.
When asked what he learned from the playoff loss, third-year Phantoms coach Ian Laperriere was blunt.
“Make sure you don’t play the first three playoff games on the road,” he said, perturbed. “Seriously, I was heartbroken about that. We have great fans here in the Valley. They give us unbelievable support.
“The weekend before the playoffs, we were in third place in the division and went into a little slump after we clinched the playoff spot. I feel bad for [team owners] the Brooks brothers, for everybody who invested so much time and energy, but we didn’t even get a home playoff game scheduled. That’s just not right.”
Charlotte averaged less than 4,000 people per game in the playoffs.
“We would have packed the PPL Center solid,” Laperriere said. “People from Philly would have driven up. I‘ve played in the playoffs when you have a packed house, and when the crowd is behind you, you play better.”
That’s the goal for the Phantoms this season: not just make the playoffs, but to get that critical home-ice advantage.
The first step in that process is to help the young players develop with veteran leadership to guide them. With Cal O’Reilly signing with the Milwaukee Admirals in the offseason, veteran Garrett WIlson has been named captain.
Wilson, a physical 6-foot-3, 218-pound left wing, is in his fourth season with the Phantoms and is coming off a career-high 43-point season (18 goals, 25 assists). He actually served as captain for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the first eight games of the 2018-19 season, but was called up by the Pittsburgh Penguins and never went back down.
“It was kind of funny in a way,” Wilson said. “But this with the Phantoms is definitely a huge honor especially with this organization. The Brooks brothers run a first-class organization with an unbelievable facility. We’ve got great fans. To lead the charge is an honor.”
“Choosing ‘Wils’ to be captain was the easiest decision of my life,” Laperriere said. “Wils is Wils. I love guys like that. He is a no-nonsense guy who leads by example. We’re lucky to have leadership like that. Any kids or veterans coming our way, you look at him and you know that he’s a pro.”
The defensemen are relatively young and will be tested, but veteran Louie Belpedio, a third-round pick of Minnesota in 2014, had a productive year and is part of the leadership to help the youngsters grow.
Ronnie Attard, a 24-year-old Flyers’ third-round pick in 2019, is in his second year with the Phantoms and produced 12 goals and 20 assists.
The 6-foot-4 Adam Ginning, 22, is also back after a solid season.
Laperriere is also looking forward to overseeing the development of 21-year-old Helge Grans, who like Ginning, is from Sweden. The pair present almost identical size, each listed at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds.
Up top, right winger Wade Allison cleared waivers on Monday and was assigned to the Phantoms. He plays the game at 120 mph and played 60 games with the parent-club Flyers last season. He has played 38 games with the Phantoms over the last two seasons.
At forward, Samu Tuomala, 20, a second-round pick in 2021 from Finland, had an impressive camp with the Flyers and Laperriere is looking to get the flashy Tuomala accustomed to the smaller sheet of ice in North America.
Zayde Wisdom, 21, also had an impressive camp with the Flyers. He stayed in Voorhees to train with the team over the summer rather than head home to Toronto.
“He knows it’s a big year for him,” Lapierrere said. “He committed himself over the summer to train right, eat right, and it showed in training camp. He put himself right back on track. I want to see him play aggressively. In the preseason games with the Flyers, he was a little bit more nervous than assertive, so we want to see him play with confidence.”
“I just want to be better than I was last year,” Wisdom said. “Especially from a defensive standpoint. I want to be defensively sound and the guy that Lappy knows he can lean on. I need to focus on that part of my game at this point in time, and the offensive will eventually create itself.”
In goal, the Phantoms are looking to veteran Cal Peterson, a 28-year-old who played 10 games with the Los Angeles Kings and 40 with the Ontario Reign of the AHL last season.
With Sam Ersson designated for the Flyers, it’s almost a sure bet Felix Sandstrom will get time with the Phantoms. Both Parker Gahagen (30) and Nolan Maier (22) were listed among the Phantoms goalies as of Monday night.

2021-22 Lehigh Valley Phantoms Season Preview
- October 11, 2021
ALLENTOWN, Pa. – The Lehigh Valley Phantoms are preparing to build off a solid season in 2020-21 with a few significant changes. First-year head coach and former Flyer Ian Laperriere takes over the reins behind the bench. On the ice, the team has added some veteran talent to complement a younger mix. Felix Sandstrom takes the starting position in goal as he looks to challenge for NHL time, and strong talent like Tyson Foerster looks to take the next step at the AHL level.
The Phantoms will be contending with a number of injuries to start the season but will look to their veteran players to guide the team in the early portions of the new campaign.
Last Season in Review
Record and Playoff Appearance: 18-7-4-1, 32 games played, second place in the North Division. Did not participate in postseason play.
Season Summary: With a varied roster thanks in part to the early AHL debuts of Zayde Wisdom and Foerster, the Phantoms made a strong push to be one of the league’s top teams in the shortened 2020-21 season. After losing a portion of their schedule due to COVID-19 issues, the Phantoms struggled a bit but still finished second place in their division this past season. Stability was a key issue with their NHL affiliate in Philadelphia, who endured a difficult season, and the Phantoms are looking to build into one of the league’s top teams as the hockey world returns to normal.
Statistics: The Phantoms were led by forward Cal O’Reilly with 23 points (four goals, 19 assists), dressing in all 32 games for the team in 2020-21.
Lehigh Valley’s 96 goals for was at the middle of the pack offensively, finishing 18th in the league, while their 92 goals against ranked eighth-best amongst their peers. Their power play struggled at 17.9% efficiency, ranking 18th in the league, while their penalty kill was sixth-best across the AHL.
It’s safe to say Lehigh Valley thrived defensively and had success by suffocating their opponent’s offense.
Key Acquisitions: The Philadelphia Flyers were very active over the summer, making trades and signing new faces to bolster their lineup, and built depth that should result in a stable lineup for the Phantoms. No bigger signing was that of former AHL MVP Gerald Mayhew , who had back-to-back 60 point seasons with the Iowa Wild from 2018-20. That includes an astonishing 2019-20 season in which the 28-year-old had 61 points (39 goals, 22 assists) in just 49 games played before the season ended early. That stat line included ten game-winning goals, 13 power-play goals, and two shorthanded goals on his way to being awarded the league MVP honors.
Alongside Mayhew, veteran defenders Adam Clendening and Nick Seeler bring a combined 195 games of NHL experience to Lehigh Valley’s blue line alongside skilled young defender Cooper Zech .
Key Losses: The Flyers are going with youth in their goaltending system, and that meant the loss of AHL veteran Zane McIntyre over the summer. McIntyre is a consistent, solid presence between the pipes, and although the organization is confident in the abilities of Felix Sandstrom , Kirill Ustimenko , and Samuel Ersson , it places a lot of responsibility for them to carry the load for the Phantoms.
Other key departures were veteran defenseman Derrick Pouliot , Nate Prosser , and Tyler Wotherspoon , who brought a lot of experience and poise to the blue line.
2021-22 Schedule Breakdown
It will be a challenging schedule for the Phantoms over 76 games, and a large portion of their games will feature their two interstate rivals, the Hershey Bears and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, who combine for 26 games of the slate. The season is often won or lost in those matchups, which was the focus of last season’s entire calendar, and the three Pennsylvania teams know this well.
They will have eight games against the Charlotte Checkers in their return to play with their new NHL affiliates in Florida and Seattle for this season, and six games against Bridgeport, Springfield, Providence, and Hartford. They’ll also play the teams in the North Division two times each (four games against Cleveland).
Top Storylines for 2021-22
Lehigh Valley’s biggest storyline is the youth movement, which is in full swing with a lot of possibilities. Players like Seeler, Clendening, and Mayhew will look like veterans at the oldest age on their roster at 28, while the time to shine is now for Foerster, Jackson Cates , Isaac Ratcliffe , and Linus Sandin . The Flyers have been very willing to insert young players into their lineup and allow them to take the reigns as has been the case over the past few seasons, and these players will be looking to continue their strong first impressions this season.
Health is going to be a storyline to watch out for, at least in the early going of the season. Wade Allison , Wisdom, Zech, Tanner Laczynski , and Egor Zamula are all on the shelf in addition to Flyers regulars Sam Morin and Kevin Hayes . Laczynski is likely done for the season with a hip injury, and Allison may not be too far behind him. Wisdom may be out until December at the soonest, and Zamula and Zech are a few weeks out.
It’s a lot of injuries before the puck has dropped on the new season, which leaves the Phantoms digging into their lineup a bit already and missing some key players. There’s enough talent on the roster that it’s not back-breaking, but it leaves the team on thin ice once the normal grind begins.
The youth story extends to the net as Sandstrom takes over the goaltending responsibilities after a solid debut in 2020-21. Lehigh Valley is missing a key figure in Alex Lyon , who has been a fixture in Allentown for many years, and it’ll be up to potentially three goaltenders with 18 combined games of AHL experience between Sandstrom, Ersson, and Ustimenko between the pipes for the season. All three are draft selections of the Flyers over the years, with Sandstrom previously dueling current Flyers starter Carter Hart during their days of competitive World Junior Championship play, so confidence in the trio is naturally high. It will be up to the Flyers coaching staff to guide the three without a traditional veteran goaltender in the group.
Prediction Sure to Go Right
The Phantoms are going to get impressive seasons from young players like Foerster and Cates, and will show that 2020-21 was no fluke with a strong showing. Sandstrom will put any doubts to rest and will come out of the season poised to take over in Philadelphia’s backup role in 2022-23.
Predictions Sure to Go Wrong
The injury bug is mounting amongst the team’s top prospects, and if it causes significant issues for the Phantoms in the early going, it might play a role in derailing an exciting season. With teams looking to hit the ground running this season, it could prove devastating.
How will the Phantoms fare this season? Will they miss the playoffs, become victims of the AHL’s new playoff format, make a deep run, or win the Calder Cup? Let us know your thoughts!
