Back with Flyers, Umberger's career comes 'full circle' @NHLdotcom

Philadelphia Flyers forward R.J. Umberger joined NHL Live to discuss his trade to the Flyers from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for forward Scott Hartnell.

Umberger returns to Philadelphia, where he spent his first three NHL seasons before the Flyers traded him to the Blue Jackets in June 2008 for two draft picks. He had 18 goals and 34 points in 74 games for the Blue Jackets in 2013-14, has 169 goals and 366 points in 673 career games and has scored at least 20 goals five times in nine seasons.

"It's come full circle now," Umberger said. "It's an exciting moment for myself and my family. I think moving out of Columbus, I think this is an ideal situation and I can't wait to get there and started."
