Jeff Carter Has Been Traded to Columbus
Per Bob McKenzie, Jeff Carter has been told he was traded to Columbus: [TSN]
In exchange for Carter, the Flyers are expected to receive Jakub Voracek, plus first and third round draft picks.
The 21-year-old Voracek recorded 14 goals and 32 assists in 80 games last season, after recording 16 goals and 34 assists in the 2009-10 season. He is currently a restricted free agent.
The trade frees up about $4 million in salary cap space for the Flyers to sign Ilya Bryzgalov.
Apparently, Paul Holmgren felt that there would be no other way to get a deal done for a top-notch goalie. Carts had three straight 30 seasons and was the seventh leading scorer in the NHL last season. That doesn't grow off trees.
Philly Sports Dailly has some more.
Per TSN and three other sources both Ryan and I have, there is a real possibility Michael Richards will get traded, too.
I… I need a minute.
