The Flyers claimed 29-year-old veteran forward Patrick Brown off waivers from the Vegas Golden Knights.

And, in order to get down to the 21-player limit before Friday night’s regular season opener against the Canucks at the Wells, forward Jackson Cates and defensemen Nick Seeler and Cam York were loaned to the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. In addition, forward Garrett Wilson was assigned to the Phantoms.

Brown, who has appeared in five regular-season games for the Golden Knights over the past two seasons, also competed in 14 Stanley Cup games for the Golden Knights, recording one goal in two games in 2020 and two goals in 12 games in 2021.
