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.
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.
