The Flyers announced that they have recalled goaltender Brian Boucher from their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.
With the recall, the Flyers also announced that they have placed (G) Michael Leighton on injured reserve with an upper body injury.
Boucher is traveling with the team today on their trip to Toronto and Winnipeg as they face the Maple Leafs and Jets in back-to-back nights on Monday and Tuesday respectively. He will wear uniform No. 33.
He has appeared in six games with the Phantoms this season, posting a 2-4-0-0 record and a 2.71 GAA and .908 save percentage.
