Flyers goalie Brian Elliott will make his preseason debut Wednesday in a 7 p.m. matchup against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden (97.5 The Fanatic).
Elliott, who had abdominal surgery in February and was ineffective after returning to the lineup late in the season, is expected to be ready to handle the No. 1 duties this year.
Carter Hart, the 20-year-old who dominated the Western Hockey League and is viewed as the Flyers' goalie of the future, also will play. He stopped all 11 shots he faced in his preseason debut, a 3-1 win Monday over the Islanders.
Henrik Lundqvist and Dustin Tokarski will be the Rangers' goalies. Tokarski played last season for the AHL's Phantoms.
