Flyers extend D Coburn, add D Meszaros from Tampa @NHL

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Braydon Coburn to a contract extension and acquired defenseman Andrej Meszaros from Tampa Bay.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren announced the trade and Coburn's two-year contract extension Thursday.

Coburn tallied five goals and 14 assists last year for the Flyers, while Meszaros had six goals and 11 assists with the Lightning.

The Flyers gave up a second-round pick in the 2012 draft for Meszaros, who has 33 points in two NHL seasons. Holmgren says Meszaros is durable and can play in all situations.

Philadelphia also announced the signings of veteran defenseman Sean O'Donnell, who appeared in 78 games with the Los Angeles Kings last season, to a one-year contract, and veteran forward Jody Shelley, who split the last season between the San Jose Sharks and the New York Rangers, to a three-year deal.
