Instant analysis: Flyers trade Jake Voracek for Cam Atkinson

When it rains, it pours. As if the pair of moves this past week weren’t enough to keep Flyers fans on their toes, Chuck Fletcher has gone out of his way during the NHL Draft to trade for veteran Cam Atkinson. Here’s all you need to know.

It was reported a couple of weeks ago that the Flyers would be looking to move on from Voracek, who has spent ten years in the City of Brotherly Love. The first outlet was the NHL Expansion Draft, and with the Kraken opting to take Carson Twarynski instead, Fletcher wasted little time in finding a suitor for Voracek and ensuring a pretty impressive return in the process.
