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

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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
