Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren made the announcement Saturday before the team played the Boston Bruins.

Detroit will receive Philadelphia's seventh-round selection in 2014 if Philadelphia signs Huskins to a 2013-14 contract prior to Oct. 1.

Huskins is in his seventh NHL season, his first with the Red Wings. He has appeared in 11 games, going scoreless with an average of 15:20 of ice time.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound defenseman from Almonte, Ontario has played 310 NHL games, recording 67 points (13 goals) and 173 penalty minutes.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.

— Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper on his team's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3 on Sunday
