News

Niskanen was acquired by Philadelphia from Washington in exchange for Radko Gudas on Friday. The Flyers will retain 30 percent of Gudas' salary as part of the deal.

Impact

Niskanen notched eight goals and 17 assists last year, reaching the 25-point mark for a sixth straight season. Gudas has never reached the 25-point mark in his seven-year career, so this move represents a solid upgrade on the blue line for the Flyers. Niskanen is a top-four defenseman with a high-powered shot that could help him land a power-play role with his new club.
