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 mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
