Flyers Acquire Kris Versteeg
By Kevin K
Bob McKenzie of TSN reported that the Flyers have traded a first and third round draft pick to Toronto for Winger Kris Versteeg.
Versteeg has 14 goals and 21 assists on the season before being traded to the Flyers.
Flyers may have sent too much to Toronto for Versteeg, however, sources tell CSNPhilly.com that Toronto asked for JVR for Versteeg but took the first and third round pick instead.
With the versatile Versteeg now acquired by the Flyers, it proves that Lavy was right ... it's now Stanley Cup or Bust for the Flyers.
Matt Carle on the addition of Kris Versteeg, "The depth of our team is starting to show some resemblance to the Phillies starting rotation".
Versteeg played for the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks last season and was on a bad Toronto team this season before being acquired by the Flyers.He will wear number 32 for the Flyers and is expected to make his Flyers debut versus the Tampa Bay Lightning.
