Center Chris VandeVelde has signed a one-year contract with the Flyers and will be available for tonight's home game against the Montreal Canadiens. To make room for VandeVelde, the Flyers have loaned left wing Tye McGinn to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound VandeVelde signed an AHL contract with the Phantoms during the summer. He appeared in 23 games for the Phantoms, recording seven goals and six assists.
During the previous three seasons, VandeVelde split time playing for the Edomonton Oilers and their AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City.
