On February 25, the Flyers decided to move on from one of their fan favorites in forward Wayne Simmonds by sending him to Nashville in a trade deadline move, acquiring Ryan Hartman and a fourth round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. Hartman, who registered 20 points (10G-10A) in 64 games for the Predators, knew he would have big shoes to fill in Philly and was immediately up for the challenge.

Tweet from @NHLFlyers: Hartman: "I'm excited for a fresh start with a new team."

Hartman settled into Philadelphia for the final 19 games of the season, tallying 2G-4A and logged an average TOI of 12:03. Hartman intends on training and improving his game during the offseason, which he enters as a restricted free agent.
