Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall disputed the idea that the Flyers bringing in Ray Emery on a tryout basis was a reflection of the level of trust they have in Anthony Stolarz.

"Absolutely not," Hextall said. "This is not a reflection at all of Stolie. It’s just so we have a third guy. We truly don’t have a third guy in the organization right now." Stolarz was summoned by the Flyers because Michal Neuvirth is out for the rest of the regular season. Stolarz has no NHL experience and if he does get a start, that game will almost certainly be an important one as the Flyers are in a tough battle for a Wild Card spot. Hextall's suggestion that bringing in Emery was a depth move is valid, but ultimately it will all come down to how the final seven starts are distributed. If Emery gets a start, but Stolarz doesn't, then that will suggest that Philadelphia didn't feel this was a good time for Stolarz to debut.
Mar 30 - 11:21 AM

Anthony Stolarz has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Stolarz will likely spend the remainder of the regular season with Philadelphia because Michal Neuvirth is expected to miss the next three weeks with a lower-body injury. Stolarz has a 2.59 GAA and .916 save percentage in 42 AHL contests this season.
Mar 21 - 9:13 AM

Mar 12 - 1:33 PM

Anthony Stolarz has been sent to AHL Lehigh Valley.

This move corresponds with the Flyers taking Michal Neuvirth (lower body) off of the injured reserve list. Stolarz didn't end up playing for the Flyers during his NHL stint.
Feb 11 - 1:42 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled Anthony Stolarz from the minors.

Feb 2 - 10:23 AM

Tue, Nov 17, 2015 01:41:00 PM

Anthony Stolarz has been returned to AHL Lehigh Valley.

Wed, Feb 25, 2015 05:41:00 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have called up Anthony Stolarz.

Steve Mason (knee) and Ray Emery (lower body) are both projected to miss Tuesday's contest, so the Flyers needed another goaltender. Stolarz is expected to serve as Rob Zepp's understudy. Mason should return on Thursday or Saturday, so Stolarz's stint in the NHL is expected to be brief.
Mon, Feb 23, 2015 06:47:00 PM

Anthony Stolarz has been sent to the minors.

Philadelphia summoned Stolarz when Steve Mason suffered a knee injury because their first choice for a replacement, Rob Zepp, was also hurt. Zepp has recovered though, so that's why Stolarz has been sent down.
Mon, Feb 16, 2015 04:43:00 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers are expected to call up Anthony Stolarz in the near future.

Steve Mason is dealing with a lower-body injury and the Flyers' preferred call up, Rob Zepp, is also hurt. Aside from Ray Emery, that leaves Stolarz as the only healthy goaltender under contract. Stolarz, 21, has a 3.04 GAA and .911 save percentage in 22 AHL games. "Is he ready for this level?" Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "Probably not." With that in mind, we anticipate Stolarz primarily warming the bench.

Anthony Stolarz is nearly ready to start his first professional season after he had hip surgery in May.

He expects to be 100 percent shortly and Philadelphia GM Ron Hextall said Stolarz is slated to skate on Tuesday as he continues his rehab. Stolarz is excited to start his pro career after playing the last two seasons in the OHL with London. "Everyone looks forward to it. It is a huge step in my career," he said. "For me, it is going out there and continuing to get better. Just go and try to win as many games as we can. Moving to Lehigh Valley, having a new group of guys coming in, younger guys are coming in that I know. It is going to be a fun year and we are going to succeed the best we can."
