The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher took a chance on Tuesday when they placed a defenseman on waivers. 

Fletcher rolled the dice and placed Mark Friedman on waivers so they could place him on the taxi squad. 

However he won't be making it to the Flyers taxi squad. 

The Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed Friedman off waivers where he'll join former Flyers' general manager Ron Hextall. 

Hextall has always appreciated Friedman style of play so it's no surprise there.
