Philadelphia Flyers acquire Carcillo from Phoenix for Upshall, draft pick

Wednesday, 03.04.2009 / 3:38 PM / News

The Canadian Press

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

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
