The Daily News has confirmed through team sources that the Flyers will waive defenseman Randy Jones sometime this weekend. The move will put the sixth defensive spot up the grabs between Ole-Kristian Tollefsen and Danny Syvret, one of whom will become the seventh defender.
Jones, who has suffered from a chronic hip injury the past two seasons, has had a less than impressive preseason. The sluggish start, matched with his hefty $2.75 cap hit, made him a target to be waived. Jones has one year left on his contract.
Jones spent the last three years as a starter for the Flyers, scoring 61 points in 184 games.
