The Flyers spent the last two days between their fourth preseason game making additional cuts as they reduce the roster in preparation for the open of the regular season just over two weeks away.

On Wednesday, the Flyers moved seven players to the AHL for the start of Phantoms camp on Friday: Mark Dekanich, Chris McCarthy, Maxim Lamarche, Jesper Pettersson, Steven Swavely, Kevin Sundher and Martin Ouellette.

On Thursday, 10 more players were optioned to the Phantoms: Nicolas Aube-Kubel, Radel Fazleev, Tyrell Goulbourne, Corban Knight, Danick Martel, Mark Zengerle, Robert HaggReece Willcox, Alex Lyon and Anthony Stolarz.

The Flyers roster sits at 39 players, Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny among them, with four preseason games remaining.

The Flyers are back in action on Saturday night against the Boston Bruins from Wells Fargo Center at 7 p.m.
