The Philadelphia Flyers announced Saturday defenseman Hal Gill will participate as a tryout in training camp, which begins Sept. 12 at Wells Fargo Center.

Gill (6-foot-7, 244 pounds) played 32 games last season with the Nashville Predators, with no points and 12 penalty minutes. In 15 NHL seasons with the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Montreal Canadiens and Predators, he has 184 points in 1,102 games.

He won the Stanley Cup in 2009 as a member of the Penguins.

If Gill does make the Flyers, he could provide some depth on the blueline. Last season saw a number of Philadelphia defensemen miss time with injuries, including Andrej Meszaros, Braydon Coburn, Andreas Lilja and Nicklas Grossmann.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
