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

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
