After four days of scrimmages and on- and off-ice drills, the Flyers’ rookies will finish their camp with a game Wednesday night against the New York Islanders’ prospects at the PPL Center in Allentown.
“It’s great to to have a game again; really looking forward to this,” said 6-foot-2, 204-pound goalie Felix Sandstrom, who has been one of the most impressive Flyers in rookie camp.
Pascal Laberge, who missed most of last season after undergoing hip surgery, will be among the players to watch Wednesday.
The 6-1, 188-pound right winger has a powerful shot, and he will join Morgan Frost, Joel Farabee, Isaac Ratcliffe, and Phil Myers on the first power-play unit.
“It’s been a long offseason, so I’m excited about the game,” said Laberge, who is expected to start the season with the Phantoms.
Scott Gordon, who will coach the Flyers rookies Wednesday, has been impressed by Laberge, a second-round draft selection in 2016.
