Zayde Wisdom Assigned to Royals by Flyers

Reading, PA - The Reading Royals, proud affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms, announced Wednesday that forward Zayde Wisdom has been reassigned to the club by the Philadelphia Flyers (NHL) from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms (AHL).Wisdom, 20, joins forward Evan Barratt and defenseman Mason Millman as three NHL-contracted players on the Royals roster. 

A native of Toronto, Ontario, Wisdom has scored one goal and six assists in 26 games with Lehigh Valley this season. He recently scored his first goal of the season with the Phantoms on December 28 against the Bridgeport Islanders.

In the 2020-21 season, Wisdom became the youngest player in Phantoms' franchise history when he debuted at just shy of 18 years and 7 months. He scored seven goals with 11 assists for 18 points in 28 games in that debut campaign with Lehigh Valley including back-to-back two-goal contests in just his third and fourth games of his professional career. Wisdom's 2021-22 season was delayed with Lehigh Valley due to off-season shoulder surgery. That season, he returned to the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL where he scored nine goals and 29 assists for 38 points in 43 games.

The 5'11" right wing was a Round 4 selection of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.
