The Flyers today recalled goaltender Jeremy Duchesne on an emergency basis from the Adirondack Phantoms, their AHL affiliate, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Duchesne replaces Michael Leighton, who suffered a high ankle sprain in Tuesday's shootout loss at Nashville. Duchesne's call-up was first reported in today's Daily News.

Duchesne, 23, has a 1-1-0 record with a 1.02 goals-against average and .981 save percentage for the Phantoms. His victory was a 4-0 shutout over the Providence Bruins on March 13. This is his first call-up to the NHL. He also has a 9-4-3-2 record with one shutout, a 3.20 GAA and .904 save percentage for the Kalamazoo Wings, the Flyers' ECHL affiliate.

Duchesne, a native of Silver Spring, Md., was picked by the Flyers in the fourth round of the 2005 draft.
