Philadelphia Flyers

NHL CapHit: $5,750,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Flyers have acquired Matt Niskanen from the Capitals for Radko Gudas.

Niskanen, who has a modified no-trade clause, has two years left on his seven-year deal that carries a $5.75M cap-hit. While with Washington, Niskanen never turned out the offensive production that he did in his final year in Pittsburgh, earning himself that huge deal. Since signing with the Capitals, Niskanen is tied for 38th among defensemen with 156 points (29G / 127A) in 390 games. He had eight goals and 17 assists (25 points) in 80 games a season ago.

Niskanen will play with his regular partner Dmitry Orlov tonight and will play alongside John Carlson on the second power play unit.

Niskanen (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Niskanen suffered a lower-body injury on Sunday vs. the Panthers. He missed Monday’s practice, skated briefly on Tuesday and participated in today’s morning skate, but is still considered a game-time decision. He said “I don’t know yet,” when asked if he would play, so monitor his status during pre-game warmups.
