Luca Sbisa, the Flyers' 18-year-old defenseman, is staying with the club, general manager Paul Holmgren said tonight.

 After he plays in his 10th game Thursday, Sbisa would have to remain on the club's 50-man roster. There had been conjecture he would go back to juniors after Tuesday's game, but Holmgren said that's not going to happen.

Sbisa has improved with each game and is now on the power play. The Flyers could still send him to juniors during the season, but he would count against their 50-man roster and limit their flexibility.

Look for Sbisa to stay here until at least December, when Randy Jones and Ryan Parent could return from injuries.

And don't be surprised if he's here all season.
