Slowly, the Flyers' roster is growing as they prepare to get ready for the shortened NHL season.

There were 11 players--six more than usual--at the team's informal practice in Voorhees Tuesday.

The newcomers: Claude Giroux, Ilya Bryzgalov, Michael Leighton, Scott Hartnell, Braydon Coburn and Matt Read.

They joined the regular Lockout Gang: Kimmo Timonen, Jody Shelley, Andrej Meszaros and Andreas Lilja.
