Ustimenko returns to Royals after two-game stint with Phantoms

Ustimenko returns to Royals after two-game stint with Phantoms
The Reading Royals, proud affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, announced Tuesday that the Flyers have reassigned goaltender Kirill Ustimenko to the Royals from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Charlie Gerard has also been recalled from loan by the Phantoms.

Ustimenko started once and appeared in an additional game since his initial call-up to Lehigh Valley in late October. The Flyers’ 2017 third-round draft pick recorded 21 saves on 25 shots in a 6-3 loss at the Providence Bruins on Nov. 13. He came off the bench during a 7-3 loss at the Charlotte Checkers on Nov. 6 and stopped all four shots faced.

With the Royals, Ustimenko stopped five of eight shots in his only appearance during the home-opening game on Oct. 23 against the Nofolk Admirals. Pat Nagle backstopped the Royals to a 6-4 win after relieving Ustimenko.
