Noah Kitts and Samuel Ierson lead Team Flyers to sweep Rangers in the beginner’s game

With a 5-1 win on Saturday night, the Flyers swept a pair of rookie games from the Rangers this weekend at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Igor Zamula, Ole Liksel, Noah Kitts, Zed Wisdom and Ronnie Attard scored for the Flyers in the second victory.

Samuel Ersson, pining for some much-anticipated action, was the best player in the Flyers. The Swedish player cut a distance in the net and saved 36 balls.

The Flyers won the first game, 2-1, in overtime on Friday night. Tyson Forrester Deliver the winner of the game.

Let’s get into the notes about the second beginner’s game in the House of the Phantoms.

• Kitts, the leader in this year’s junior training camp, only boosted his push for the top club’s season-opening roster by scoring a short cut.

Since the 23-year-old winger would have served penalty kicks if and when he was with the Flyers, it is possible that he could not have asked for a better way to score. The club’s decision-makers had to like it.

Cates started the ice sequence and finished it. His older brother Jackson Keats, a trusted center, helped score the goal.

As Ian Laperriere, head coach of AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley, said earlier this week, the player won’t win a place on the roster with rookie match offers. But Noah Kitts, as he did in his 16-game Test last season, has continued to appear as a player. Finished with help too.

Similar to Cates, Attard also came from college and caught a glimpse with the Flyers last season. The elegant big man of defense played well on Saturday night.

The pilots want to see him play some kind of physical defense. He introduced it, especially in the third period. The final clip culminated in a blast of power to his target.

“They’re smart enough to realize they haven’t made it yet,” Laperriere said on Friday of Keats and Attard. “They’ve tasted it a bit, which is great for them. They don’t want the bus with me for five or six hours, they want to be on those great planes and in those nice hotels with the big boys. They’re the smart guys.”

• Sure, it was just a show game for beginners, but this one had to feel good for Ersson.

Last season, his first with the Phantoms, the 22-year-old was limited to five games due to injuries after playing 42 the previous year in the SHL, Sweden’s professional league.

“Last year came with fire in his eyes,” Labrier said on Friday. “Unfortunately, he has had a lot of injuries. But he is the type of person who has character and wants to perform well.

“We need him to stay healthy. It’s been a disappointing year for him last year and hopefully that’s in the past and he’ll be able to build himself up into a professional hockey player.”

Ersson looked sharp. He was very excited to get this opportunity. You cannot simulate the movement of the game.

“Train whatever you want, but it’s a different beast,” he said on Friday. “I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time, so I’m really excited to get out there.

“Having the confidence that I know I can play a full game, that’s what I need right now. Just knowing my body can handle it.”

• Lycksell was totally impressed in both rookie games.

After he scored on Friday, his goal on Saturday came from a skilled shot and added two of her assistants.

His streak with Wisdom and Elliot Desnoers was good.

“The only thing I’ve seen is the practices, which is unbelievable,” Desnoers said Friday when asked if he knew much about Lycksell ahead of the rookie games. “Really happy to play with him and he’s doing a really good job. A really skilled player and he’s good at communicating too.”

Zamula booster I started recording for pilots. He is an unforgettable man in the future defensive image of pilots.

• Bootcamp for Novice Pilots concludes Sunday in Voorhees, New Jersey with training from 10:15-11:15 a.m. ET.
