Philadelphia has traded forward Kris Versteeg to Florida in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2012 or 2013 Entry Draft, as well as a third-round selection in 2012.

Versteeg's tenure in Philadelphia was short -- he was acquired from the Maple Leafs at last season's trade deadline and suited up for just 27 games with the Flyers.

Versteeg -- a 25-year-old right wing who was a member of the 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks -- tallied 21 goals and 25 assists for the Flyers and Maple Leafs last season.

In 250 career NHL games, the 5-foot-8, 182-pound Alberta native recorded 65 goals and 82 assists.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
