Rookie Scott Laughton is sticking with the Flyers. As expected, the Flyers kept Laughton - the team's first-round pick last June - on their Opening Day 23-man, thanks to extra roster space provided by Danny Briere's wrist injury. According to reports, Laughton will be one of 10 junior players to make the Opening Day cut. Seven other underage players were sent back to their junior teams earlier in the week. "With Danny's situation being as it is, it just gives us a few days to give him a bit longer look," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said.

With the season opener just two days away, the Flyers' lines and defensive pairings are coming into focus. That's not an easy task when roster and lineup decisions have to be made without any exhibition games. "Right now, we're just evaluating them in practice, and that's all we've got," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said after the fourth day of training camp Wednesday in Voorhees. As for the young players battling for spots - such as Scott Laughton, and Eric Wellwood - Laviolette said his decisions would be influenced by what he observed while scouting junior and AHL games during the 113-day lockout.

From Frequent Flyers, the Daily News' Flyers blog: Flyers forward Tom Sestito enjoyed his time playing in England during the lockout. Except, you know, for the inedible food . . . and the fact that he came down with a case of the mumps. "They did the blood work and I ended up with a disease from the 1930s. I felt like I was on the Oregon Trail," Sestito said, laughing it off on Friday. "Turns out, a teammate's wife had it. I was already back in the U.S. for 6 days. I woke up one morning, my glands were all swollen, and I looked like 'Hitch.' [Will Smith in movie of the same name, not former coach Ken Hitchcock]

MATT READ waddled off the ice and into the Flyers dressing room on Thursday and snuck over to his stall in the only quiet corner. It's a space usually reserved for the Flyers' unnoticed players, with his locker located next to Zac Rinaldo and Eric Wellwood. There, it would be easy to forget that the player unlacing his skates led all rookies in goals last season, topping rookie of the year Gabriel Landeskog and burgeoning Oilers star Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Read, 26, was one of only two rookies to break the 20-goal pleateau, finishing with 24 - nearly 10 percent of the Flyers' entire total (264)

It was an unofficial practice because the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement still has to be signed, but the Flyers who skated in Voorhees on Monday seemed to have some extra zip during the one-hour session. It had everything to do with the tentative agreement that was forged between the league and the players' union on Sunday, ending the 113-day lockout. "It's been a long four months," said defensemen Kimmo Timonen, one of five Flyers who practiced Monday. "You kind of have to try to be in shape just in case this happens.

After the 113-day NHL lockout ended in the wee hours Sunday morning, some fans suggested that Scot Beckenbaugh - the federal mediator who steered both sides to an agreement during a 16-hour meeting - should replace the league's commissioner, Gary Bettman, as the person who hands the Stanley Cup to the winning captain this June. Beckenbaugh will live in NHL lore, while Bettman and union boss Donald Fehr will forever be cast as villains because of the way they seemingly took the fans for granted during a laborious, contentious process that alienated millions.

Representatives from the NHL and the players' union will resume negotiations Wednesday in New York City, but it does not seem as if the lockout is close to ending. Bill Daly, the NHL's deputy commissioner, said core economic issues - the major stumbling block in the labor stalemate - are not on the agenda. Instead, health and safety and drug testing are among the issues that are expected to be discussed. The sides will also meet Thursday in New York. Wednesday will be the 24th day of the lockout.

The Phantoms will play Albany, the New Jersey Devils' AHL affiliate, on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the Skate Zone in Voorhees. It is open to the public and free. The Phantoms' lineup will include Brayden Schenn, Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo, Eric Wellwood, Marc-Andre Bourdon, Harry Zolnierczyk and Erik Gustafsson, all of whom spent considerable time with the Flyers last season. The Oct. 11 NHL openers and the first few weeks of the season are expected to be canceled later this week.

Representatives of the NHL and the players association met at the league's New York City headquarters on Friday, trying to find some common ground that will lead to a new collective-bargaining agreement and an end to the lockout. But while the sides did not discuss the core economic issues, they made some contentious comments after the meeting. "You can meet all you want, but you can't make them talk about what they don't want to talk about," Bill Daly, one of the league's negotiators, told reporters.
