Phantoms’ Pyett diagnosed with sarcoma

(AP) – Defenseman Logan Pyett of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, the Philadelphia Flyers’ AHL affiliate, has been diagnosed with a form of cancer and will be out indefinitely.

The Flyers said Friday the 27-year-old Canadian has a sarcoma in his upper leg. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told there’s "a lot of positive signs" and the "indications are it’s fairly isolated in his leg."

Pyett signed a one-year contract with the Phantoms in August. He was selected by Detroit in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL entry draft.

Pyett has skated in 362 career AHL games with Grand Rapids and Connecticut, posting 30 goals and 102 assists for 132 points.
