York is currently with the Flyers and likely won’t be participating in the event as he is logging top-four minutes on the back end in Philadelphia and has become a key player in all situations for the team.
The 2019 first-round pick scored 3 goals and 10 assists for 13 points in 20 games with the Phantoms before being recalled to Philadelphia. He currently has 1 goal and 7 assists for 8 points in 14 games with the Flyers ahead of tonight’s matchup with Washington.
Foerster, the Flyers’ 2020 first-round selection, has enjoyed a very solid season in Allentown, potting 9 goals and 12 assists for 21 points in 32 games. He ranks third on the Phantoms in goals (Elliot Desnoyers and Artem Anisimov – 12) and second on the club in assists and points (Olle Lycksell – 16 and 22).
It’s been a terrific turnaround for Foerster, who underwent surgery for a dislocated shoulder he suffered last year in a game against Charlotte. He was limited to just 9 games with Lehigh Valley and also skated in 13 contests with the OHL’s Barrie Colts, but this year Foerster has come back healthy and better than ever before.
Foerster has already broken his previous AHL career-highs in assists and points from the 2020-21 season and is one goal away from tying his 10-goal total from that season as well.
This will be the first AHL All-Star Game since the 2019-20 season, where the last player to represent the Phantoms and Flyers at the event was current Philadelphia forward Morgan Frost.
