News: Lauridsen was sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley following Saturday's game against the Sharks, Randy Miller of NJ.com reports.
Impact: Lauridsen was called up earlier on Saturday after Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo were forced to sit out the game with the flu. The blueliner logged just 10:26 of action against the Sharks, mostly due to the fact that he spent nearly the same amount of time in the penalty box (10 PIM).

News: Lauridsen was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impact: With blueliners Mark Streit and Carlo Colaiacovo both experiencing flu-like symptoms Saturday morning, Lauridsen and Mark Alt were brought aboard from the minors, and both are expected to enter the lineup. The 26-year-old Lauridsen, who has six points and 128 PIM in 64 games with Lehigh Valley this season, hasn't appeared at the NHL level since the 2012-13 lockout year.

News: Lauridsen was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: The Flyers brought Lauridsen aboard ahead of Tuesday's game against the Penguins while blueliners Nick Schultz and Carlo Colaiacovo were nursing injuries. Colaiacovo would end up suiting up for Tuesday's game, relegating Lauridsen to the press box as a healthy scratch. With the Flyers now off the schedule until after the All-Star break, Lauridsen will head back to the AHL to play regularly.
