What began in training camp as a contest between two pretty good goalies to secure the backup spot on the Flyers' roster ended yesterday when 19-year-old Maxime Ouellet was sent back to juniors. That guarantees that 29-year-old European Roman Cechmanek sticks around as Brian Boucher's backup. The move hardly was a surprise given how poorly the Flyers have played defensively early this season, leaving Boucher - or whoever was in net - to fend for himself. Those are not ideal conditions in which to develop a 19-year-old goaltender.

It wasn't exactly a baptism of fire. It was, however, a legitimate test of what the Flyers have waiting behind the curtain. Rookie goalie Maxime Ouellet gave a strong showing for the Flyers last night in his first NHL start during a 4-1 loss to the Dallas Stars at Reunion Arena. The 19-year-old made 18 saves on 21 shots against one of the Western Conference's best clubs, one that is two years removed from the Stanley Cup. Dallas also scored an empty-net goal. Brett Hull passed Mario Lemieux for sole possession of eighth place on the all-time goal-scoring list with the 613th and 614th of his career.

There are more than a few scouts in hockey who look at 19-year-old Maxime Ouellet and project him as the Flyers' starting goalie in about three years. Some think Ouellet, who has been working this week at the club's rookie camp in Voorhees, is better than Brian Boucher. Others say he is already ahead of where Florida's Roberto Luongo. a top goaltending prospect, was at his age. Ouellet is like a mongoose in the net. He is incredibly agile on movement across the crease and has made difficult two-on-one saves look routine.

Often criticized in recent years for not having a goalie good enough to carry them to a Stanley Cup, the Flyers now find themselves with an entirely different problem - they have too many good goalies. General manager Bob Clarke said yesterday that 19-year-old Maxime Ouellet will remain in training camp instead of returning to junior hockey. Clarke suspects Ouellet's performance in camp thus far will make the decision on whether he ever returns to juniors very difficult. Clarke would not rule out the possibility that Ouellet could even beat out 29-year-old Czech star Roman Cechmanek for the backup job. Another junior, Justin Williams, who turns 19 in October, also is sticking around.

That pond hockey style of play the Flyers displayed in Thursday's 6-3 debut win over the Vancouver Canucks may have resulted in a small price to pay: a minor injury to Brian Boucher. He is questionable for tonight's game at the First Union Center against the Boston Bruins. The Flyers' 23-year-old goalie missed practice yesterday with a strained right hip flexor. Although he isn't certain what play caused the injury, he is fairly certain it happened late in the first period, around the time the Canucks were threatening to score a third-straight shorthanded goal off Flyers miscues.

The Flyers' long-range picture in goal hasn't been clear, and it became fuzzier yesterday with the selection of Maxime Ouellet during the NHL amateur draft at the FleetCenter. The 6-foot, 180-pound Canadian goaltender was the Flyers' first-round pick at No. 22. His selection created a logjam of young goalies, with Brian Boucher and Jean-Marc Pelletier in the system and the organization struggling to get one into a backup role at the NHL level. "He was the best player available, in our opinion," Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said, explaining the decision to take a goalie even though the club is thin at forward.

Timmy Vertala scored two goals as the Quebec Citadelles defeated the Phantoms, 4-1, in an American Hockey League game last night at the First Union Spectrum. The Phantoms have lost two in a row for the first time this season, although they outshot the Citadelles by 37-17. Quebec improved to 7-0-1. The Phantoms fell to 7-3-0. Arron Asham scored what turned out to be winning goal in the first period, giving Quebec a 2-0 lead on an assist from Mike Ribiero. The Citadelles had opened the scoring when Vertala chipped a bouncing puck past Phantoms goalie Maxime Ouellet.

Mike Lephart scored his fifth goal of the season on a wrist shot through a screen to break a tie, and the Phantoms went on to defeat the Hershey Bears, 4-1, in an AHL game at the HersheyPark Arena last night. Maxime Ouellet picked up the victory in net for the Phantoms, allowing just one goal on 33 Hershey shots. The Phantoms' Kirby Law scored the game's first goal on the power play in the first period. Mikhail Kuleshov tied the game for Hershey at the 17-minute, 42-second mark of the period.

First of three parts One year. That's how long it took Flyers prospect Anthony Stolarz to go from stopping pucks in relative obscurity in the barren, second-tier hockey outpost of Corpus Christi, Texas, to starting Game 1 of the Memorial Cup on Canada's biggest junior stage this spring. Oh, and there was a brief, 3-month stay wedged in between there at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. "It's nice to take a look back for a minute and reflect," Stolarz said. "It's been quite a ride.

Although some mock drafts have the Flyers selecting a goalie with their first-round pick next week, general manager Paul Holmgren said yesterday that the club probably would not choose a goaltender with its top choice. The Flyers will have the 21st overall pick in the draft, which will be held in Montreal. The first round will on June 26; the rest of the selections will be made the next day. The Flyers need goaltending in their system, but this year's draft is not loaded with top-notch goalie prospects.

The Flyers probably will need a new backup goalie when the regular season starts Oct. 11. Antero Niittymaki, who had a 12-9-2 record and a 2.91 goals-against average as Marty Biron's backup last season, had minor surgery on his left hip Friday and was walking around on crutches yesterday at the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees. Niittymaki is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks, trainer Jim McCrossin said. That means he will miss training camp, which starts Saturday, along with the exhibition season.

Most seasons, the Flyers are buyers at the NHL trade deadline. But other than the acquisition of Vladimir Malakhov in 2004, most trade deadline deals under former general manager Bob Clarke didn't result in a long playoff run. Tuesday marks this year's deadline, the earliest it's been since before 1980. This year, the Flyers figure to be sellers - not buyers - given they're going nowhere fast. They already have more than $22 million in salary cap space for next season, and if they were to lose a player, such as Geoff Sanderson, whose contract carries over, they'd have even more cap room for 2007-08.

Bob Clarke said yesterday that he likely will back off on getting another goaltender right now. The Flyers' general manager said he received encouraging news about Jeff Hackett's vertigo, and that has lessened his need to make a deal. "I spoke with Jeff this morning, and he's way better than he was," Clarke said from his office in South Jersey. "He says his symptoms are a lot less. " Hackett was to see a physician yesterday about getting medication to control the condition.

The second of Dennis Seidenberg's two goals, which came in the second period with assists from Mark Murphy and Ben Stafford, was the game-winner as the Phantoms beat the Portland Pirates, 3-1, last night in an American Hockey League game at the Wachovia Spectrum. Kirby Law's power-play score at 10 minutes, 13 seconds of the third period, off assists from Kirk Furey and Boyd Kane, provided some insurance. The Phantoms entered the contest having scored five goals on seven power-play opportunities over the previous two games.

Antero Niittymaki, the Flyers' young goalie prospect from Finland, got his first shutout for the Phantoms when he stopped 24 shots against the Providence Bruins on Sunday. Two days earlier, Niittymaki made 33 saves, a season high for the team, including 15 in the third period and overtime, as the Phantoms skated to a 1-1 tie with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks. And on Nov. 12, he faced four shots and made four saves in a relief appearance against the Mighty Ducks. In those three games, Niittymaki turned aside more than 98 percent of the shots that came his way. The American Hockey League recognized the achievement by making Niittymaki the AHL player of the week.
