In an effort to inject some life into an offense that has scored 15 goals during their seven-game losing streak, the Flyers recalled forwards Claude Giroux from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Stefan Ruzicka from Philadelphia of the AHL on Monday.
Scottie Upshall, who is playing on a third line with Jeff Carter and Stefan Ruzicka, netted the first two-goal game of his career against the Islanders Monday. On Thursday he's likely to get a new linemate when Sami Kapanen (knee) returns to the lineup.
The Sports Xchange reports Flyers RW Stefan Ruzicka received his first career game misconduct after losing his jersey and his shoulder pads in a first-period fight with Pittsburgh's Darryl Sydor on Saturday. Ruzicka failed to tie down his jersey, breaking an NHL rule for all players. He was hit with two penalties for 15 minutes in the game.
The Flyers announced Thursday they recalled forward Stefan Ruzicka from the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL. He was up earlier this season before being sent back down to the AHL.
Stefan Ruzicka was recalled from Philadelphia of the AHL on Tuesday, as he replaces Jesse Boulerice on the active roster. Boulerice, suspended for 25 games by the NHL for his cross-check with a stick on Vancouver's Ryan Kesler last Wednesday, has been placed on waivers.
