TRENTON, N.J.- The Titans added three players to their training camp roster with the arrival of goalie Brad Phillips and defenseman Tyler Hostetter – the first two additions from the Philadelphia Flyers system – and winger Matt Germain.
“I’m looking forward to working with all three,’’ said Titans head coach Vince Williams. “All will help us as we prepare for our season.’’
Phillips, 22 and a native of Farmington Hills, Mich., played collegiately at Notre Dame University and sparkled in 30 games with the Central Hockey League’s Bloomington Prairie Thunder in 2010-11. A seventh-round pick by the Flyers in the 2007 Entry Draft, he had a 2.38 goals-against-average and a save percentage of .914 with Bloomington.
Hostetter, 20 and a native of Lititz, Pa., played Major Junior Hockey with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League the past four seasons, he totaled 14 goals and 58 assists in 213 games. Signed by the Flyers to an entry-level contract in 2009, he has participated in three Flyers rookie camps in Voorhees and was a member of the Junior Flyers of West Chester, Pa. He appeared in three games with the AHL’s Adirondack Phantoms last season.
Germain, a left-handed shooting winger, played in nine games with the Trenton Devils, scoring three goals and four assists, after a four-year career at Providence. He comes to the Titans after spending time in the camp of the AHL’s Oklahoma City Barons.
The Titans will again practice at Pro Skate in Monmouth Junction at 10:30 a.m. today – with drills open to the public – then play two preseason games, meeting Elmira at 7 p.m., Friday at Pro Skate, and visiting Reading at the Sovereign Center at 4:05 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 9.
The team makes its regular-season ECHL return at Elmira Oct. 14, with its 2011-12 home-opener vs. Florida Oct. 22.
