The Flyers announced today they have signed defenseman Nick Shultz to a one-year deal. TSN's Pierre LeBrun reports the deal is worth $1.25 million.
Schultz, 31, split time last season between the Edmonton Oilers and the Columbus Blue Jackets. In 69 games in 2013-14, Schultz didn't score but registered five assists while averaging 16:18 of ice time. He doesn't provide a lot of offense as he has scored one goal over the last two seasons spanning 117 games.
This is a good signing at a decent price for a seventh defenseman for the Flyers.
