LaBarbera was reassigned Thursday to AHL Lehigh Valley.

EDGE Analysis

LaBarbera was an emergency recall after Philadelphia starter Steve Mason (lower body) was injured. Given his struggles in the AHL this season, posting a 5-9-0 record with a 2.80 GAA, its comes as no surprise that the 36-year-old has not hit the ice for the Flyers this year. The goaltender's reassignment bodes well for Mason returning to action after the All-Star break.

LaBarbera was recalled by the Flyers on emergency conditions Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

LaBarbera rarely gets an extended chance in net with an NHL club, and that should be the case again this time around, with Steve Mason (lower-body) likely to back for the Flyers' next game following the All-Star break. the 36-year-old is set to back up Michal Neuvirth on Wednesday, but would only see ice time in an odd situation.

The Flyers have recalled LaBarbera, according to team beat writer Bill Meltzer.

LaBarbera has been returned to the AHL Phantoms, CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a curious move, as the Flyers are still without netminder Steve Mason due to personal reasons. LaBarbera has only made 187 appearances in the NHL despite having 11 years of service time, making him a career backup.

LaBarbera was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

LaBarbera's presence on the roster will likely be temporary, as Steve Mason is away from the team for a personal matter. He'll serve as the backup to Michal Neuverth on Monday, but could wind up back in the AHL shortly thereafter.

LaBarbera signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Thursday.

LaBarbera is slated to mentor and serve as the understudy to goalie prospect Anthony Stolarz at AHL Lehigh Valley this season. The 35-year-old made five appearances for the Ducks last season when John Gibson missed time with an injury, posting a 2.61 GAA and .909 save percentage.

LaBarbera will be the backup goalie Sunday against the Flames for Game 2, the Orange County Register reports.

Teammate John Gibson will miss the game with the flu, and Frederick Andersen will get the start. Andersen seems firmly established as the starter at this time, which really limits any fantasy value for LaBarbera.

LaBarbera will be recalled from AHL Norfolk prior to Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Though the Ducks have yet to officially confirm as much, goalie John Gibson is believed to have sustained an injury in practice that will keep him unavailable Saturday, necessitating the call-up of LaBarbera. The length of LaBarbera's stay won't be known until more information is provided on the Gibson injury, but expect LaBarbera to back up Frederik Andersen for at least Saturday's contest.

LaBarbera was reassigned to AHL Norfolk on Friday.

LaBarbera's stint with the Ducks only lasted three days, and he unsurprisingly did not make an appearance. The demotion means that Frederik Andersen (upper body) is healthy enough to at least serve as an emergency backup in Friday's game against the Kings.
