Blue Jackets send Umberger to Flyers for Hartnell

Scott Hartnell
Left Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 20 | ASST: 32 | PTS: 52
SOG: 207 | +/-: 11

The Columbus Blue Jackets traded forward R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft on Monday to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for forward Scott Hartnell.

Umberger had 18 goals and 34 points in 74 games for the Blue Jackets in 2013-14.

The 32-year-old left wing spent his first three NHL seasons with the Flyers, who traded him to the Blue Jackets in June 2008 for two draft picks. The trade came weeks after he had 10 goals in 17 Stanley Cup Playoff games to help the Flyers reach the 2008 Eastern Conference Final.

"R.J. is a versatile guy who can play all positions," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "He's a good penalty killer who skates well. He's a veteran who has been around a long time and knows how to play the game properly. He'll be used in a lot of different areas. I think with our team it is nice to have a real versatile guy like him."

New Hurricanes coach sees areas to improve

Friday, 06.20.2014 / 3:14 PM / News

Kurt Dusterberg - NHL.com Correspondent

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For someone with no previous NHL head-coaching experience, Bill Peters hit the right notes in a press conference Friday introducing him as the coach of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Taking over a team that has missed the playoffs five straight seasons, the former Detroit Red Wings assistant coach was friendly and direct as he fielded questions. He also knew exactly what the Hurricanes need to do in order to improve: Fix the power play, play better at the start of games, and be harder to play against at home.

"We have enough skill to have a good power play," said Peters, who signed a three-year contract with Carolina. "We've got to be a 60-minute team and we have to have a hard team to play against here in Raleigh."

Quote of the Day

The biggest part for us is that it's a home game. We know how special the fans here are and how much the fan base has grown in the last decade, and how passionate they are. I don't think a lot of people around the hockey world know that or appreciate that yet, and I think that it's great that this city is getting recognition for how passionate they are about hockey.

— Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby on the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
