Flyers Re-Sign Adam Hall

It appears depth is now the name of the game for Paul Holmgren's team construction.

The Flyers have re-signed forward Adam Hall to a one-year extension worth $600,000.

Hall came to the Flyers as a result of a waiver wire pickup on April 3 from the Tampa Bay Lightning. He played for both the Carolina Hurricanes and the Lightning before becoming a Flyer. Hall played 11 games for the Flyers.

The 32-year-old Kalamazoo native scored four points in 32 games last season--all assists. He has been used as a depth winger throughout his career.

Hall played a prominent role as a penalty killer and defensive fourth-liner in the Flyers' lineup last season.

This additional move seals the fate that at least one prominent piece will be moved to alleviate cap space. Rumors of captain Claude Giroux's hefty contract extension will also play to Holmgren's need to clear room.

According to, the Flyers have a mere $596,478 in cap space. The free agent signing period will begin tomorrow, July 5.
