Lyon, 25, made 11 appearances as a rookie last season. He posted a 4-2-1 record in 7 starts.
He helped lead the Lehigh Valley Phantoms to the Eastern Conference Finals, posting a 1.98 GAA and .944 save percentage. Lyon also stopped 94 of 95 shots against him in Game 3 of the divisional round against the Charlotte Checkers, which ended up being the longest game in AHL history.
Lyon is likely going to be the starter in net for the Phantoms next season and the first potential call-up if either Brian Elliott or Michal Neuvirth gets hurt. Lyon progressed as the season went on, but still has some ways to go in his development. Either way, it is a great sign to have depth in net, especially given the situations the Flyers have had in the past few seasons.
