Flyers re-assign Voce to Grand Rapids

The Philadelphia Flyers on Monday announced that they have reassigned left wing Tony Voce to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Voce, 26, led the AHL’s Phantoms during the 2005-06 season with 28 goals, 55 points and 18 power-play goals, while placing third on the club with 27 assists. After accumulating 21 points (8g, 13a) in 41 games this season, the third-year pro shows 115 points (58g, 57a) and 216 penalty minutes in 181 career AHL games, all with the Phantoms.

The Philadelphia native holds several of the Phantoms’ franchise records, including most goals in a game (4 – 2/11/06 at Chicago) and most goals by a rookie (22 in 2004-05). He was a member of Philadelphia’s Calder Cup championship team in 2005.

Voce enjoyed a decorated collegiate career at Boston College, helping the Eagles to an NCAA championship as a freshman in 2001 and finishing as a Hobey Baker Award finalist as a senior in 2004. He is expected to make his Grand Rapids debut on Wednesday when the Griffins host the Syracuse Crunch.
