The Flyers announced Monday nigh that t they were recalling left winger Oskar Lindblom from the Phantoms and sending goalie Anthony Stolarz to that AHL team.

Stolarz, 24, had left knee surgery in September and right knee surgery in April. He was activated from the injured, non-roster list and sent to Lehigh Valley.

General manager Ron Hextall said that Stolarz needed to get some practices under his belt and that he didn’t expect him to play for a while.

Lindblom, 21, is expected to make his NHL debut Tuesday night against visiting Montreal. An AHL all-star, he is in his first full season with the Phantoms and has collected 16 goals and 18 assists in 54 games.
