Matt Read is back.
The Philadelphia Flyers announced this afternoon forward Matt Read, who had previously spent the season buried in the AHL, has been recalled from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
Read will make his season debut at the Wells Fargo Center Thursday against the Nashville Predators as the Flyers look for their third straight victory.
Read appeared in all five games for the Phantoms this season, recording one goal and a plus-1 rating with seven shots.
The 31-year-old has seen his totals drop off following an excellent 22-goal, 40-point season in 2013-14 and it remains to be seen whether he has a place in this lineup.
The move brings the Flyers roster to 23 players with 14 forwards and seven defensemen.
