PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers released assistant coach Craig Hartsburg from his contract on Thursday while their AHL affiliate, the
Philadelphia Phantoms, signed left wing Todd Fedoruk.
Hartsburg, who had been with the Flyers for the last two years, was named head coach of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League,
Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said. Hartsburg had been the head coach and director of hockey operations for the Greyhounds during the 2001-02
season. He had previously served as head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
Fedoruk, 25, totaled 10 goals and 18 assists in 220 career games with the Flyers. Clarke, who also serves as GM for the Phantoms, said Fedoruk and his
agent had agreed to the contract with the Phantoms after exploring options in Europe.
Terms of Fedoruk's contract were not disclosed.
To make room for Fedoruk, center B.J. Abel was loaned to the Trenton Titans of the ECHL.
