08:21 AM ET 10.02 | Just what the Flyers need: Another goaltending sidebar. The Flyers' top farm team, the Adirondack Phantoms, will have numerous great storylines this season. Perhaps none is more interesting than the development of goalie Niko Hovinen, a native of Helsinki, Finland. No goaltender in the AHL will be taller than the 6-foot-7 Hovinen, who is coming off a superb season in Finland (2.26 goals-against average, .920 save percentage) and will be playing his first pro season in North America. ... His father, Seppo, was rated the no. 1 javelin thrower in the world in 1975 and competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics, and his mother, Ulla, holds the all-time Finnish record for the women's discus and she finished fourth in the ['84 Games].
