5th year right wing Brandon Alderson(29) leaves North American hockey signing a one-year deal with Heilbronner Falken of DEL2 for 2017/2018 after putting up a career high, team leading 26 goals and 29 assists and a +8 rating with Greenville Swamp Rabbits in 44 ECHL games, while also getting in 13 AHL games on loan to three different clubs.

The big forward played only his rookie season with original contract team Philadelphia Flyers‘ direct affiliate Adirondack Phantoms, then split time between farm squads Lehigh Valley Phantoms and Reading Royals as a sophomore and third year skater.

The 25-year old should be able to detonate Germany’s tier two scoring and move up to DEL within a year.

Brandon Alderson(19) Adirondack Phantoms



Philadelphia Flyers‘ undrafted rookie right wing Brandon Alderson(19) is the type of player that could sneak a call up to the NHL and make it stick for a long career.

At 6’4″ 200 lbs. he comes to the table with power forward size that should keep growing with age.

The 22-year old has never exactly put up amazing numbers, although he was a point-per-game guy in his fourth season of junior hockey in the OHL with Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Pretty much strictly a fourth line player for minor league affiliate Adirondack Phantoms, he’s been able to connect for 6 goals and 4 assists in 41 AHL games.

He’s a big guy that can create space on the ice, who with a little offensive coaching could become a sleeper success.

Signed to a three-year entry level deal through 2016, he has some time to develop.
