Finally Official: Flyers sign Kaspar

After weeks of speculation, the Flyers have made it official with former San Jose forward Lukas Kaspar. The former first-round selection in2004 was let go by the Sharks after underachieving and spending the majority of his pro career in the AHL.  Kaspar played just 16 games with the Sharks, scoring four points in the process.

The 23-year old has the size to be a force at 6’2, 225 lbs.,  but doesn’t play like a power forward.  Despite having a sniper’s shot and decent hands, Kaspar is inconsistent and plays a shy game.  He has signed a two-way contract and could see some time with the Flyers, if his performance in training camp and his time with the Phantoms are productive.

With the signing of Kaspar, the Flyers continue to load up the AHL-NHL tweeners.  With Krys Kolanos, Mika Pyorala, Jason Ward and now Lukas Kaspar in the mix, the Flyers have incredible forward depth in the system. Not to mention if one of these players finally hits their potential, they could quickly become an everyday NHLer.
