The Flyers signed Nick Schultz to a one-year deal worth $1.25 million.
Schultz had five assists and a minus-13 rating in 69 games with the Blue Jackets and Oilers last season. Schultz will likely start the season as the Flyers seventh defenseman and carries no fantasy value.
The Oilers have traded Nick Schultz to the Blue Jackets for a fifth-round pick.
Schultz, 31, is a defensive defenseman who addresses the need for a D-man following the injuries to Ryan Murray and Fedor Tyutin on the Blue Jackets bllueline. Schultz averaged 16:58 TOI while posting no goals and four assists with a minus-11 rating in 60 games with the Oilers.
