Flyers repackage Hamhuis to Penguins for 2011 pick

You can’t say the Flyers were held completely out of the 2010 NHL entry draft.

As the first round of the draft came to an end in Los Angeles on Friday, the Flyers got their usual draft-day ink by trading the rights of defenseman Dan Hamhuis to the Pittsburgh Penguins for a third-round selection in the 2011 entry draft.

Hamhuis’ rights were acquired from the Nashville Predators, five days ago, in exchange for young Flyers defenseman Ryan Parent.

Twenty-seven year old Hamhuis and the Flyers were at odds over a new contract which had the blue liner rumored to be asking for upwards of $5 million a year.  Hamhuis will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

With the money aimed at Hamhuis now freed up, it is expected that the Flyers will target a high-priced goaltender.  Philly was rumored to be close to a deal with the San Jose Sharks for the rights of 34-year-old backstop Evgeni Nabakov.
