What Does Matt Niskanen Bring To The Philadelphia Flyers?

General Manager Chuck Fletcher continued to make aggressive moves on Friday morning as he obtained the services of defenseman Matt Niskanen from the Washington Capitals for Radko Gudas. There’s a decent amount of risk involved in this deal as Niskanen is coming off a down season with the Caps, especially when considering that Gudas was arguably the most consistent Philadelphia Flyers blue-liner during the 2018-19 campaign. Niskanen is also the older of the two but does bring a different amount of skills to the city of Brotherly Love, though, which is likely why Fletcher brought him to the team.
