A signing may be brewing in Flyers Land. Up against the 50-contract limit with 49, the Flyers have traded defenseman Patrik Hersley to Nashville for future considerations. The move gives the Flyers 48 contracts, allowing them to possibly sign forward Blair Betts and remain under the limit by one.
Hersley was a low-end prospect currently playing for Modo in Sweden. The 6’3 defenseman spent most of his career in the ECHL, playing just five games for the Phantoms in 2008-09.
