PHILADELPHIA - The Philadelphia Flyers have added more toughness.

They've acquired Daniel Carcillo from the Phoenix Coyotes for Scottie Upshall and a second-round draft pick.

Carcillo had almost 100 more penalty minutes than anybody else in the NHL last season. In 54 games with the Coyotes this year, he has 10 points (3-7) and 174 penalty minutes.

The 24-year-old had spent his entire NHL career with the Coyotes.

Upshall will be joining his third team. He had 21 points (7-14) in 55 games with the Flyers this season.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
