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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
