Flyers Trade Tye McGinn; Sign D Nick Schultz

The Flyers made a pair of moves Wednesday, trading a forward and signing a defenseman.

The Flyers shipped forward Tye McGinn to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a 2015 third round pick. They signed free agent defenseman Nick Schultz to a one-year, $1.25 million deal.

Flyers Send McGinn to Adirondack; Activate Hartnell

The Flyers have activated left winger Scott Hartnell, who is set to play against the New York Islanders on Saturday.

To make room for Hartnell on the roster and in the lineup, the Flyers have loaned left winger Tye McGinn back to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL. McGinn has a team-high three goals in four games, but his ice time drastically diminished his last two games.

Flyers Evaluating With Week Off

The Flyers' week-long break will come to an end this Thursday when they host the Rangers.

While off, the Flyers set to work on a few things. Their powerplay unit, which is 29th in the NHL needed work; the entire team went to the Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday as a bonding experience; and they have a couple players potentially returning from injuries which will create a few decisions.

McGinn Emerges as Flyers' Model Forward

Tye McGinn received an 18-game trial period with the Philadelphia Flyers last season.

He wasn't incredibly productive offensively, but he showed glimpses of being a consistent, big-bodied presence on the wing.

Just two games after being called up from Adirondack (AHL), he has scored three goals, including two in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver.

Kesler Scores Two; Canucks Come Back to Beat Flyers

Despite outplaying the Vancouver Canucks on both ends of the ice, the Philadelphia Flyers came out on the losing end of Tuesday evening's game.

Ryan Kesler rammed home the rebound of a Chris Higgins shot that gave Vancouver the 3-2 lead and eventual victory. It was the Flyers' third straight loss as they dropped to 1-6-0.

With 2:25 left, Higgins ripped a shot off a beautiful pass from defenseman Dan Hamhuis and Kesler was able to coral the rebound. It was Kesler's second goal of the game and gave Kesler and Higgins each a two-point night.

Flyers goaltender Steve Mason made the initial save and gave a phenomenal diving effort to try and stop the shot.

Gameday vs Vancouver: Something Has Got to Give

The offense is still looking to wake up and Vancouver is looking to fix it's defense. Someone is going to correct their problems tonight. Who will it be?

Flyers Looking to Solve Forward Depth In All the Wrong Places

When it was determined that Max Talbot would be a top-nine forward heading into the season-opening 3-1 loss to Toronto on October 2 there was an immediate problem with the Flyers.

No disrespect to Talbot, who is one of the hardest working penalty killers in the NHL, but he is not a third line left winger on a team that is desperately searching for a goal-scorer. And with no wiggle room under the salary cap the Flyers are finding out the hard way that no depth at forward is going to hurt them this season.

Wheels Too Hot For Flyers

The Detroit Red Wings, who actually boasted a power play worse than the Flyers, put on a clinic with the man-advantage and it paid off.

Detroit scored three power play goals and absolutely dominated a slow and sloppy Flyers team, 5-2, Saturday in Detroit. The Flyers gave up seven power play opportunities and it killed momentum much of the game.

The Red Wings got three-point efforts from four of their players. Nicklas Kronwall (goal, two assists), Pavel Datsyuk (goal, two assists), Henrik Zetterberg (two goals, assist) and Daniel Alfredsson (three assists) all put on star performances.

Flyers Hartnell, Lecavalier to Miss Time

The Flyers' depth at forwards, which was already at question when healthy, just took a major hit.

After leaving the game on Friday, both left winger Scott Hartnell and center Vincent Lecavalier will both miss some time, per general manager Paul Holmgren.
