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.
We will see if Bryz is in mid-season quote form when practice ends at around 11 a.m.
The 48-game season is expected to start Jan. 19; the schedule hasn't been released yet.
