The NHL on Friday canceled games through Nov. 1, but the move was a formality because the league had said it was hoping to start its season Nov. 2 if a new collective bargaining agreement is signed by Thursday. The NHL had previously canceled the season's first two weeks because of the labor dispute with the players' union. No new meetings are scheduled between the league and the NHL Players' Association. The lockout began when the CBA expired Sept. 15. Phantoms fall. Andrew Johnston scored the lone goal for Adirondack Phantoms, the Flyers' farm team, in a 2-1 loss to the host St. John's IceCaps.

WASHINGTON - The Flyers got closer to the 23-player limit by sending left winger Michael Raffl and defenseman Oliver Lauridsen to the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms on Friday. The moves left the team with 25 players in training camp. Raffl's demotion was a bit surprising because the Austrian had impressed the Flyers' brass during the preseason. The 24-year-old forward was trying to make a gargantuan leap from a lower-level Sweden league to the NHL. In four preseason games, Raffl was scoreless but was one of the Flyers' most active forwards.

MONTREAL - Defenseman Erik Gustafsson, promoted from the Adirondack Phantoms, replaced Kurtis Foster in the Flyers lineup Saturday night in Montreal. Gustafsson played in 30 games (one goal, four assists, plus-12) with the Flyers last season and had a strong playoff showing. "I'm a lot more confident this year. I know what to expect," he said before the game. Gustafsson, 24, a smooth skater and puck-mover who gives the Flyers some speed on the back end, has recovered from a fractured ankle - suffered while blocking a shot in December - that sidelined him during his stint with the Phantoms.

ROBERT HAGG got his first taste of American-style hockey when he spent 10 games with the Adirondack Phantoms last season. It was enough to tell him he needed to come across the pond full time. "It is a dream come true that I signed with the Flyers," Hagg said. "I am really looking forward to playing my first season over here. It is going to be so fun. I am so excited. " Hagg was the Flyers' second-round pick of the 2013 draft. He played professionally in Sweden until now, but thought it would be conducive to his career to come to America and play in the Flyers' system.

SCOTT LAUGHTON was stuck on the boards, scrambling and looking for a way out. The 2012 first-round draft pick was being defended in a one-on-one situation by 2013 first-rounder Sam Morin. The 6-7 bruiser had already smashed Radel Fazleev against the glass and checked Nick Cousins to the ice but he couldn't trap Laughton for the boom shot. Laughton twisted his skates and did a half-spin that left Morin sliding on the ice. He whipped a puck to the open man who slapped it for a goal past Merrick Madsen.

The newest Flyers defenseman, Andrew MacDonald, worked well with Luke Schenn in Wednesday's 6-4 win over Washington. "I knew him a little bit before he even got traded here," Schenn said after Thursday's practice in Voorhees. "We were a little familiar with each other, and it was easy to go over some stuff before the game. " Four years ago, Schenn and some mutual friends on the New York Islanders vacationed in Mexico during the Olympic break. MacDonald was also on that trip. "We hung out a lot," Schenn said, "and I got to know him pretty well, so it was pretty easy to welcome him to the team.

TAMPA, Fla. - After missing the last seven games, rookie winger Michael Raffl was told he would be back in the Flyers lineup Wednesday night against Tampa Bay. "It's never fun to sit and watch the game, so it's going to be fun tonight," Raffl said after the morning skate at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Coach Craig Berube has wanted to play Raffl more, but he didn't want to break up the team's chemistry. The Flyers were 5-1-1 in the seven games Raffl missed. "We won five or six games in a row, so it's hard to make changes," Raffl said.

For Tye McGinn, it has been a strange journey this week: from a minor-leaguer to a first-line NHL left winger. Recalled from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms on Saturday because of an injury to left winger Scott Hartnell, McGinn was immediately inserted onto the Flyers' top line, alongside Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound McGinn responded with a goal in Detroit on Saturday, and he was back on the No. 1 line Tuesday against Vancouver. This time, he scored goals in the first and second periods.

The Flyers sent center Scott Laughton back to his junior team Thursday and promoted veteran Kris Newbury, a feisty center-winger, from the AHL's Adirondack Phantoms. Laughton, 19, the team's first-round selection in the 2012 draft, could have stayed with the Flyers and would not have had his entry-level contract started until he played in his 10th game. Instead, they decided he needed more seasoning, and he was returned to Oshawa in the Ontario Hockey League. "At the end of the day, you need to justify the amount of minutes you think he's going to get and weigh it against the long-term projection of where you see him down the road - and it just didn't add up for us," general manager Paul Holmgren said.
