Stolarz was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday. Stolarz's demotion indicates the Flyers are comfortable with recently-signed Ray Emery serving as Steve Mason's backup for the final three games of the regular season. Emery won't be eligible to suit up for postseason play if the Flyers make the playoffs, so if Michal Neuvirth (knee) isn't ready to return to action at that point in time, Stolarz will likely be recalled to serve as Mason's backup.
Stolarz has been recalled by the Flyers on an emergency basis. Stolarz is thus in line to serve as Steve Mason's backup for the time being, following Sunday's news that Michal Neuvirth will be out for three weeks with a lower-body injury.
Stolarz was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on an emergency basis Saturday. Stolarz was recalled to serve as Steve Mason's backup in Saturday evening's matchup with the Panthers, as Michal Neuvirth (illness) won't dress for that contest. The 22-year-old netminder will likely be returned to the minors as soon as Neuvirth is fit to play.
Stolarz has been returned to AHL Lehigh Valley. Despite getting called up from the minors Feb. 2 as the result of a lower-body injury to Michal Neuvirth, Stolarz did not end up making his NHL debut. Instead, the Flyers sent Steve Mason in goal for all five games in that span, and Neuvirth reportedly will dress as the backup for Thursday's home match against the Sabres. The Flyers are still five spots away from a Wild Card spot in the playoffs, and evidently the team didn't want to count on Stolarz helping them play catch up.
Stolarz has been recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley. A lower-body injury to Michal Neuvirth necessitated the call-up for Stolarz, the Flyers' second-round (45th overall) draft choice in 2012. Stolarz has appeared in 29 games for the Phantoms this season, posting a 15-10-3 record, 2.45 GAA and .915 save percentage. Still waiting for his NHL debut, Stolarz is best viewed as an insurance option between the pipes for the (21-18-8) Flyers.
