The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher continue to make some very big noise this offseason and Fletcher has just made another huge move.
NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reports that the Flyers have traded forward Jakub Voracek.
Voracek is headed to the Columbus Blue Jackets and in return the Flyers will receive forward Cam Atkinson.
The move provides more salary cap relief for the Flyers as Atkinson is signed through 2024-25 season at an AAV of $5.875million.
The 32 year old has a 40 goals and 30 goal season under his belt.
Full details on the trade to be revealed soon.
Im not sure what else is involved here -- if anything -- but there's a Cam Atkinson-Jakub Voracek deal being worked on between Columbus and Philadelphoa
