The Flyers made a round of cuts Wednesday following their first two preseason games.
The team returned prospects Egor Zamula, Wyatte Wylie, Mason Millman and Egor Serdyuk to their junior clubs.
Zamula is a rising prospect that looks like a promising undrafted discovery by the Flyers. The 6-foot-3, 172-pound defenseman is a smooth skater with developing skills. The 19-year-old drew the praise of general manager Chuck Fletcher during rookie camp and was impressive in Monday night's preseason opener.
"I really like [Zamula]," Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault said after the game. "I have seen him in practice, I see that there's a young kid there that's got good mobility and can make good plays with the puck. Tonight, against an NHL opponent, I really liked his poise and his demeanor on the ice.
"I thought stick-wise and mobility-wise, he did a lot of good things on the ice that as a coach, you're looking and you say, 'This guy's got a chance here.' There's no doubt in my mind that this young man's got a chance to play at some point."
He'll be a prospect to keep an eye on this season with the WHL's Calgary Hitmen.
Wylie, a 19-year-old defenseman, is a notable move given the Flyers have yet to sign him to an entry-level contract. During this summer's development camp, Wylie was unsure if he would return to the WHL's Everett Silvertips for his fourth and final junior season. There was a possibility the 2018 fifth-round pick could earn his ELC and join AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley.
Instead, he'll head back to the Silvertips and shoot for his contract throughout the season.
The Flyers also released camp invites Maxim Golod, Ben McCartney, Sean Comrie and Mika Cyr from their amateur tryouts.
The team's roster is at 54 players.
