Pat Maroon's agonizing wait in finally over.

The Flyers have sent Maroon, the player who was dismissed from the Phantoms over 3 weeks ago, to the Anaheim Ducks in a 4-player trade, the Daily News has learned.

Maroon and David Laliberte were sent to Anaheim for former Flyer Danny Syvret and 22-year-old winger Rob Bordson.

Syvret, 25, is the only one amongst the group who has seen considerable NHL action. Syvret has played 6 games for the Ducks this season, including one against the Flyers. He skated in 21 games for the Flyers last season and scored the team's only goal at the Winter Classic at Fenway Park.

"We're comfortable with Danny," general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We know him. He brings depth to our organization. He has a good relationship with [Phantoms coach] John Paddock. He'll help our power play down there. And then obviously if we have injuries, he's a guy that can come up and help."

Laliberte skated in 11 games for the Flyers last year, picking up 3 goals and 1 assist. The right winger had 9 points in 19 games this season in Adirondack.

Bordson, 22, is a rookie out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, where he netted 40 points in 40 games last year in his junior season.

Maroon was the Phantoms' leading scorer through 8 games before being dismissed for what the organization termed as "behavioral issues" and "attitude problems." The Phantoms' head coach, Greg Gilbert, was fired almost 10 days after Maroon's dismissal.

Paddock, an AHL Hall of Fame Coach, has been at the helm since. The Phantoms have also added veterans Denis Hamel and Michael Ryan to the roster.

"Syvret has been around a little while," Holmgren said. "He will definitely add a veteran presence there."
