With players like Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier taking up ice time with the Phantoms, the Philadelphia Flyers assigned six players to Trenton this week.

While hockey at the NHL level is no longer on the calendar, the Philadelphia Flyers are still making moves in the minors as they shift their rosters around with the season approaching.

The Flyers sent six players to the ECHL's Trenton Titans as they make room on the AHL Adirondack roster for a number of experienced NHL players. Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier are two of the bigger names getting lots of ice time with the Phantoms.

The two biggest names assigned to Trenton were Niko Hovinen and Jason Akeson. Hovinen is a massive 6'7 Finnish goaltender who was unexpectedly beaten out by Cal Heeter and Scott Munroe for roster spots with the Phantoms. Akeson was the points leader for the Phantoms last season.

The Titans open their season this Friday, and joining Akeson and Hovinen will be Tyler Hostetter, Blake Kessel, Luke Pither, and Marcel Noebels. Kessel is the younger brother of Phil Kessel, and he tallied 18 points in 56 games last season with the Phantoms.
