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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
