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 have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
