The New Kid on the Ice (Block)

20-year old Ryan Parent finally received the call up.  Parent has performed masterfully on the ice this season for the Phantoms warranting the call from the Flyers.  Truthfully they have some banged up defensemen at the moment; Braydon Coburn (ruptured artery), Derian Hatcher (knee), but Parent has played good enough for the Flyers to take a serious gander. 

There is a very good shot he will see the ice tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which would be a good test for the youngster, in just his second career NHL game.  His effort in the coming weeks could prove very meaningful in the decisions the Flyers will make before or at the trade deadline, which is approaching very fast (Feb 26).
