Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Set to back up Tuesday
Ersson will be recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley in order to serve as the backup against Vegas on Tuesday, Olivia Reiner of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Ersson's promotion comes as Carter Hart (illness) will be unavailable versus the Golden Knights. Once Hart is fit, the 23-year-old Ersson will no doubt be shipped back to the minors, where he figures to close out the season.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Will be sent down
Ersson will be sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley following Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Devils, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Ersson was in goal for all seven tallies, which gave him the first loss of his career in humbling fashion. The Flyers are off until Wednesday, and head coach John Tortorella made it sound like Ersson could be back with the big club in time for that game versus the Rangers.... See More ... See Less

The Devils rank sixth in the league this campaign with 3.45 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Stays perfect Monday
Ersson stopped 32 of 35 shots in Monday's 4-3 win over the Flames.
Ersson, making his first NHL start since Jan. 17, held Calgary to one goal through the first two periods before allowing a pair in the third. The Flyers would hang on for a one-goal win, despite being outshot 35-to-22. The 23-year-old Errson improves to 6-0-0 with a .913 save percentage to start his career. He could be in line for an extended look in Philadelphia if Carter Hart continues to struggle.... See More ... See Less

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Makes relief appearance
Ersson stopped nine of 11 shots in relief of Carter Hart in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Kraken.
By the time Ersson entered the contest, the Kraken already held a 4-0 lead. The 23-year-old did alright -- there was no stopping Yanni Gourde's power-play tally, and Matty Beniers scored on a breakaway off a turnover. Ersson still has yet to lose at the NHL level. He's 5-0-0 with a 2.50 GAA and a .913 save percentage through eight appearances. The Flyers are currently carrying three goalies on their active roster, so it's unclear if Ersson will get a chance to start in Vancouver, Calgary or Edmonton during the remainder of the road trip....

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Promoted Monday
Ersson was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
It's unclear if Carter Hart or Felix Sandstrom are dealing with any sort of injury but the Flyers begin a four-game road trip Thursday in Seattle. Ersson has looked great in his brief NHL time as a rookie, going 5-0-0 with a 2.37 GAA through seven appearances.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Returns to AHL
Ersson was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Ersson has a 5-0-0 record, 2.37 GAA and .918 save percentage in seven contests with the Flyers this season.

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Earns another win
Ersson stopped 25 of 27 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Ducks.

Ersson improves to 5-0-0 with a .918 save percentage in seven appearances this season. He's certainly played well enough to earn more starts going forward.... See More ... See Less

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Needed in relief Monday
Ersson gave up two goals on 13 shots after replacing Carter Hart midway through the second period of Monday's 6-0 loss to the Bruins.
Coach John Tortorella made the switch in net to try and inject some life into his squad, but the move didn't work as Boston methodically scored two goals in every period, including two against Ersson in the third. The rookie netminder has won four straight starts and sports a 2.44 GAA and .917 save percentage through his first six NHL appearances, and Ersson seems likely to get the nod for Tuesday's home game against the Ducks....

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Earns first shutout
Ersson made 28 saves in Monday's 4-0 win over the Sabres.
Ersson's first career shutout was impressive, turning aside 28 shots against a Buffalo team that had scored 11 goals over their previous two games. The rookie netminder has had an excellent start to his NHL career as he improves to 4-0-0 with a .924 save percentage through his first five appearances. Ersson has already earned the backup role over Felix Sandstrom, and he could see additional starting opportunities with Carter Hart struggling in Philly.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Starting in Buffalo
Ersson will get the starting nod for Monday's road tilt with the Sabres, Olivia Reiner of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Since coughing up five goals in his NHL debut, Ersson has won three straight games while posting an impressive .930 save percentage. The 23-year-old will make his fifth straight road appearance to begin his NHL career. With Carter Hart struggling (.894 save percentage in 13 games since the start of December), Ersson could start carving out a larger chunk of the workload in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Wins again Monday
Ersson stopped 28 of 29 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.
Ersson was denied his first shutout as Ryan Strome scored with just 40 seconds left in the game. It was still a third straight win for Ersson, though he's taken down the Sharks, Kings and Ducks on the Flyers' road trip -- that's not exactly the most intimidating set of opponents. He's allowed just six goals over his three starts after giving up five in a relief appearance versus the Hurricanes in his debut. When Carter Hart (concussion) returns, the Flyers may have a tough choice to make between Ersson and Felix Sandstrom for the backup role.... See More ... See Less

Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Second straight win
Ersson stopped 27-of-29 shots Saturday in a 4-2 victory over Los Angeles.
Ersson wobbled a bit in the first, allowing two goals in a 3:26 span. One came on the power play. But he bricked up the net from that point forward. Ersson was especially strong on four other Kings' power plays. The young Swede has won both of his starts this week.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Expected to face Kings
Ersson is expected to start on the road against Los Angeles on Saturday.
Ersson stopped 25 of 28 shots in a 4-3 overtime win versus San Jose on Thursday. He's up with the Flyers because Carter Hart is in the concussion protocol. Los Angeles has won six of its last seven games, bringing its record up to 21-12-6.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Earns first NHL win
Ersson allowed three goals on 28 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Sharks.
Ersson looked to be on track to take his first loss for much of the contest. He got a little help from his offense late, as Travis Konecny tied the game with 2:05 left in the third period and Tony DeAngelo completed the Flyers' comeback 1:10 into overtime. With eight goals allowed on 58 shots over his first two appearances, Ersson's performance so far hasn't been much to write home about. His stay with the big club could be short if Carter Hart (concussion) returns as expected Saturday versus the Kings.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Starting in San Jose
Ersson will defend the blue paint during Thursday's road game versus the Sharks, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.
Ersson was a little shaky in his NHL debut Friday against the Hurricanes, surrendering five goals on 30 shots en route to a 6-5 defeat. He'll try to secure his first career NHL victory in a favorable road matchup with a San Jose team that's 4-10-5 at home this season.... See More ... See Less
