The Flyers announced today the signing of four players – goaltender Nicola Riopel and defensemen Logan Stephenson, J.P. Testwuide and Jesse Dudas – to American Hockey League contracts.

Riopel, 21, was drafted in the fifth round in 2009 and was 4-6 with a 3.35 goals-against average in 11 games for the Adirondack Phantoms last season. He also helped lead the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey  to the championship with a record 19-5, a 2.06 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage in 33 regular season appearances. In the playoffs, Riopel posted a 16-4 record, a 2.38 GAA and a .930 save percentage.

Stephenson, 24, enters his fifth professional season and second with the Phantoms. In 2009-10, he appeared in 62 games for Adirondack, posting a goal and seven assists while collecting 140 penalty minutes.

Testwuide, 25, comes to the Phantoms from the AHL’s Houston Aeros, where he registered two goals, six assists and 111 penalty minutes over 58 games during his rookie season in 2009-10. He is the older brother of forward Mike Testwuide, who signed a contract with the Flyers in March.
