The Flyers have called up Ryan Parent to help with their defense and puck moving skills. I feel that trading for him last year for Forsberg that this timing was part of the plan. Keep him in the minors to learn the team system and bring him up when he was ready. However the good play by the team has kept him with the Phantoms longer than I expected. This kid is a complete stud! Early reports have him playing with Jason Smith. If he can stick on that pair it gives the Flyers the defense they have been coveting for years. If he plays well you will hardly notice him. He is not an offensive minded player. He will just break up plays and pass the puck. Nothing fancy.
