Flyers bring back tough guy Rosehill on AHL deal

5 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers kept a familiar pugilist in the fold on Tuesday, inking Jay Rosehill to a contract with their AHL affiliate in Lehigh Valley.

Rosehill, 30, has spent the last three seasons within the Flyers organization, appearing in 45 games from 2011-13 before playing last year with the Phantoms, scoring 12 points in 65 games.

Though he’s slowed down in recent years, Rosehill has long been known as an extremely active fighter. At no time was this more evident than during the ’08-09 campaign, when he fought a staggering 33 times (yeah, thirty-three) while playing for AHL Norfolk.
