Flyers Sign Pair of OHLers


The Philadelphia Flyers recently signed a pair of OHL players to three-year entry-level contracts: a 2012 draftee and an undrafted prospect.

First, the Flyers signed Brandon Alderson of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Alderson, 21, was an NHL free agent prior to being signed. He has spent the past two seasons with the Greyhounds and has 25 goals and 33 assists in 61 games this season.

Alderson began his OHL career in 2009 with the Sarnia Sting after being drafted by the team in 2008. Overall, he’s played 261 OHL career gaems and has 151 points in that stretch.

The Flyers also signed London Knights netminder Anthony Stolarz, who made his OHL debut this January after spending part of the year with the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks.

He played eight WCHA games before signing an OHL contract. With the Knights, he’s appeared in 14 games, allowing 29 goals against and carrying a 2.17 GAA. He also has a .926 save percentage this season.
