Jason LaBarbera is at Flyers morning practice and will likely back up Steve Mason on Saturday.

This is an update on an earlier post. The Flyers were waiting until the morning skate to determine the status of the injured Michal Neuvirth and it appears that LaBarbera being on the ice has determined that. Don't expect LaBarbera to play except in a mop up role.
Oct 24 - 10:36 AM

Jason LaBarbera could be recalled as early as Saturday.

Michal Neuvirth was injured in Wednesday's game with the Bruins and while he took some shots during a 15 minute practice session Friday, the Flyers will wait until Saturday morning to determine if Neuvirth is unable to back up Steve Mason, necessitating the recall of LaBarbera. He has no fantasy value.
Oct 24 - 8:50 AM

Jason LaBarbera has been returned to AHL Lehigh Valley.

LaBarbera didn't end up logging any minutes during this stint with Philadelphia. He was serving as the Flyers' backup goaltender while Steve Mason was away due to a personal family matter.
Oct 15 - 12:02 PM

Jason LaBarbera has been summoned by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Steve Mason will miss Monday's contest due to a personal family matter. Michal Neuvirth will get the nod in Mason's absence while LaBarbera will play between the pipes. LaBarbera has a 2.85 GAA and .907 save percentage in 187 career games.
Oct 12 - 10:47 AM

Sep 27 - 8:38 AM

Jason LaBarbera has been placed on waivers by the Philadelphia Flyers.

LaBarbera has a 2.85 GAA and .907 save percentage in 187 career NHL games. The Flyers are expected to have the 35-year-old goaltender start the season in the AHL and use him as a fallback option in the event of an injury to Steve Mason or Michal Neuvirth.
Sep 25 - 11:34 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Jason LaBarbera to a one-year, two-way contract.

LaBarbera had a 2.61 GAA and .909 save percentage in five games with Anaheim last season. He'll likely begin the 2015-16 campaign in the minors and act as the Flyers' third-string goaltender on the depth charts.
Jul 2 - 6:01 PM

Jason LaBarbera will be Anaheim's backup goalie on Sunday night.

The Ducks backup goalie John Gibson will miss the game because of the flu. Frederik Andersen will get the start for Anaheim. The Ducks lead the series 1-0.
May 3 - 2:19 PM

Jason LaBarbera will be the backup goaltender in Thursday's series opening game against Winnipeg.

John Gibson (hand) won't be available for the first game, so the Ducks will go with a goaltending duo of Frederik Andersen and LaBarbera. It's unclear when Gibson will be ready to return, but when he does come back he will take LaBarbera's spot.
Apr 16 - 6:41 PM

Jason LaBarbera will backup Frederik Andersen during Saturday's regular season finale against Arizona.

Apr 11 - 8:35 PM

Jason LaBarbera has been returned to AHL Norfolk.

Feb 27 - 12:54 PM

Jason LaBarbera has been called up by the Anaheim Ducks.

LaBarbera is expected to temporarily serve as John Gibson's backup now that Ilya Bryzgalov has successfully cleared waivers. Once Frederik Andersen (neck) is ready to return, LaBarbera will probably be sent back to the AHL.
Feb 23 - 12:52 PM

Jason LaBarbera has successfully cleared waivers.

The Ducks wanted to make room on their roster for Ilya Bryzgalov, who completed his conditioning stint. LaBarbera will go back to playing in the minors while Bryzgalov will serve as Frederik Andersen's backup.

Jason LaBarbera (hand) has been activated by the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks have a crowded crease at the moment with Ilya Bryzgalov and Frederik Andersen in the fold. John Gibson is still on injured reserve. LaBarbera has been sidelined since the end of November with a broken bone in his hand.
