The Philadelphia Flyers have traded Harry Zolnierczyk to the Anaheim Ducks.
Zolnierczyk, 25, has one assist in seven games this season for the Flyers. He had three goals and three assists last season, playing in 37 games for the Flyers. Zolnierczyk will report to the Ducks American Hockey League affiliate in Norfolk, Va.
The Flyers received rugged forward Jay Rosehill in return. Rosehill, who was with Norfolk, played parts of three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. The 27-year-old has two goals and three assists in 72 career games. He also has 198 penalty minutes. He will report directly to the Flyers.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
