UFA Signing: Arron Asham

Toughman winger Arron Asham's tour of the Atlantic Division continues as he signed a multi-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. Terms of the deal have yet to be released. Update: The deal is believed to be worth $1.28 million over 2 years.

Asham was effectively cut from the New Jersey Devils' roster following a poor offensive season where he notched only 10 points (6 goals, 4 assists) on 77 games. He even sat out a few competitions as a healthy scratch due to extended point-less stretches.

Originally drafted in the 3rd Round, 71st overall of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens, Asham has played from the Habs, Isles and Devils. The Flyers will be the third Atlantic Division squad that he suits up for. Asham has played in 498 games notching 64 goals and 71 assists for 135 points along with 537 penalty minutes.

We wish Arron the best with his new team.
