More forward depth: Flyers give Porter two-way deal

9 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers added yet another forward to their mix on Saturday, signing Chris Porter to a one-year, two-way deal.

The 31-year-old is one of those rare beasts: a ninth-rounder (282 overall in 2003) still kicking around the NHL and AHL.

He managed to play 24 games with the St. Louis Blues last season, giving him 173 career regular season contests overall, all with the Blues.

Philadelphia already boasted a lot of options at forward before this move, so maybe it’s a bit of a crowd now? (It’s tough to get too worked up about¬†this specific deal, being that it provides flexibility with its two-way status.)
