The Flyers have added three players to strengthen their organizational depth.

Ron Hextall signs Tim Brent (31) and Davis Drewiske (30) to one year, two way contracts and Chris Conner (31) to a two year, two way contract.

Brent had 15 points (5 G, 10 A) in 42 games with the Magnitogorsk Metallurg of the KHL last season.

The center has played in 207 NHL games (21 G, 27 A, 48 PTS) with the Ducks, Penguins, Blackhawks, Maple Leafs, and Hurricanes.

Davis Drewiske had 22 points (4 G, 18 A) in 62 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL) last year.

Drewiske, a defenseman, has played in 135 NHL games (5 G, 20 A, 25 PTS) with the Kings and Canadiens.

Chris Conner has been a proven point producer in the AHL level on the wing.

Conner accumulated 52 points (19 G, 33 A) in 61 games with the local Hershey Bears during 2014-2015.

Like the other two, Conner has seen significant time in the NHL with 180 games (22 G, 28 A, 50 PTS), most recently with the Penguins 2013-2014: 19 GP, 4 G, 1 A, 5 PTS

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms should be much better in 2015-2016 including a healthy Gostisbehere and Samuel Morin on the backend.
